Gaim is a nifty client. It supports all the major instant messanger protocols. AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, it's all there. Not a drop of spyware, either. I highly recommend it.

There are also other clients if Gaim doesn't appeal to you. Trillian, Messenger 2, and Miranda are a few that come to mind.

I use Gaim. It's simple, and easy. I've heard good things about Miranda and Trillian. It's mostly just a matter of personal opinion.

Use MSN

What more could you want? Its the best Messenger even if it doesn't have AIM and Yahoo in with it - anybody using them isn't worth talking to
