Trillian FTW! I keep hearing rumors of Astra's back-end being linux compatable, opening the future of a linux port... but only time will tell. Pidgin is very very nice, better in some ways in fact, but overall trillian is amazing.

Pidgin for me Although I will admit I often use Amsn for my webcam.

I tried Trillian when I had Windows on my pc's.. but for some reason it doesn't work properly with multiple user accounts.. the Pro version says it does but it always merged my wife and my buddy lists.. I know there is profiles but I find it annoying to have to pick my profile when I open the program.. it should work like Pidgin does or any other messenger program for that matter and keep seperate user account settings seperate.

Kopete seems pretty nice but I can't stick with KDE for some reason.. just used to Gnome I guess..

Pidgin looks great in my gutsy installation, one day I'll get round to compiling it and removing gaim.
