Now at 2.5.2. Simple, uncluttered interface. Three out of five for continuing difficulties establishing connections to Yahoo! IM.

Current version is now 2.5.1 - the updates on this page seem to have fallen behind for a while...

This client is the best available these days, even for windows users.... Miranda IM can be more customizable and have much more available configurations, optiosn, features, but it's only for people who have time to spend with it....

Pidgin is the open source choice for IM's... ;)

(using 2.0.0b7)

1. unstable
2. developers have trouble understanding feedback in english and try to defend the product instead of acknowledging bugs

Very polished! Supports multiple networks and spellchecking. Also intergrates well with Evolution 2. It is also moving forward with HIG compiance and UI simplification as well as other UI quirk fixes.

I'm new to the Linux world, but I've gotta say that this program is quite nice - especially when compared to Kopete! It's too bad that Linux UI's, in general, are less polished than their Windows counterparts.

Gaim just keeps getting better.

MSN, Yahoo, AOL, ICQ, Jabber, Gadu-Gadu, Zephyr, SILC, and IRC.

The new SILC support is great!
