Ok, I personally hate windows live messenger. But all my friends use messenger. That's why I have to use it too. :(
But skype does exactly the same than messenger. And it works on both windows and ubuntu. Anybody got good ideas
to get all my friends using skype, not messenger?

That is a very hard thing to do, when my friends' friends use messenger, so my friends use messenger, and so I have to use it.

Or is there a way to get messenger and skype working together?

Edit: I found out that there is "aMSN Messenger" that runs on ubuntu and is compatible with live messenger.

Pidgin works with MSN too. :)

Emesene is the best if you only need to use msn IMHO.

You can't force your friends to use what you want them to use. I have Yahoo, MSN, Gtalk, AIM, and ICQ because all of my friends have something different. I just load up Pidgin and I can talk to all of them on multiple accounts, problem solved.

Yeah Pidgin and Kopete are awesome :D I use Kopete for Gtalk, Yahoo, AIM, and MSN :) Works flawlessly.
