I currently prefer Trillian in Windows because of the IM. Everywhere plugin, which lets me IM over my PSP (Granted, it takes FOREVER to type a message) and the look of my skin, which looks quite nicely similar to my current Aero (as in Vista) motif.

I like Miranda's compactness, but I prefer the look of Trillian's contact list just because I can see my buddy's display pictures and such along with their status beside their name. It's just more appealing to me because I identify people by their icons more than I do their SNs usually.

Gaim was my choice before, but then I got IM Everywhere and can't go back.

I really miss Trillian 2.0 though, just because I could set my fonts and buddy icons for each protocol. I absolutely hate that change in 3.0.

Null for me. I still use AIM. Everytime I've tried to send files or pictures through the other clients, it has only caused me stress.

Whoohoo! Someone that thinks like me!
