Mac OS X "Since its introduction iChat has become the de facto Instant Messaging client on Mac OS X, allowing users to communicate using text, audio, and even video chat. The new version of iChat in Leopard opens up these capabilities to other applications on the system, allowing those applications to provide content through an iChat session." My take: Now, if Apple would implement support for MSN and other protocols for those of us (especially in Europe) who do not use AIM/ICQ, this could be a whole lot more interesting.

No, Apple did some useability studies 15 years ago in which they determined that AIM/ICQ were the correct protocols to use. So you are wrong to use Yahoo! etc. and must use what Apple has decided.
