Mac OS X Since my Cube could not run Leopard, and I did not have any other Macs, I was unable to delve into Leopard right away. Apple NL was kind enough to fix this problem for us, by generously loaning me a brand new MacBook with Leopard installed so I could review it for OSNews. Read on for the findings.

"The sad thing about iChat is that it is fairly useless in my country, since we all use MSN Messenger, and nobody uses AIM...."

You forgot to mention that you can use a Google Talk account with iChat, and then you have the power of gmail accounts and friends ;)

Yes, but you don't get the flashy iChat Theatre and screensharing stuff.

Yes you can, I use my google account to have video talks and have played with backdrops and screen-sharing. Obviously the other person has to be using iChat as well

Here in Finland MSN Messenger is the most widely used service too, and personally I don't know of a single person who'd use AIM, Google Talk, ICQ or anything like that ;)
