Amsn : MSN messenger for linux

Amsn is a clone of the original MSN Messenger, having the same look and feel.

This project is a modified and multilanguage version of Compu's Messenger (CCMSN).It's a Tcl/Tk script as was CCMSN and Tcl/Tk must be installed to run it. This means it is multiplatform and can run on any OS having Tcl/Tk installed (Linux, Windows, Macintosh).

I am looking for a version

I am looking for a version of msn messenger to run on Linux, it seems very short sighted of the MSN not to provide one.

GAIM, alternate messenger for linux

An alternate MSN messenger for Linux and Windows is "GAIM". Gaim is GTK2-based instant messenger application and supports multiple protocols via modules, including AIM, ICQ, Yahoo!, MSN, Jabber, IRC, Napster, Gadu-Gadu and Zephyr and more... If you use seperate clients for AIM, Yahoo, MSN, Jabber, IRC, etc... you should definately check it out. Head over to !!
