You may already know that I have some complaints about pidgin:
- its developers use a brain damaged dvcs (yes monotone sucks, yet another application written in C++ that sucks after cmake)
- The ability to listen to the user feedback is severely reduced.

Since we are talking about alternatives looks like somebody tried to make things a little nicer and forked the code so far and made something fun out of that.

Seems promising, I hope it works well enough to be put on Gentoo soon if the pidgin devs don’t come to their senses =P

    There’s always Kopete. :)

    empathy (with a good list of telepathy packages installed) shows some great potential too, and it’s evolving fast.
    Not mature enough yet to replace pidgin, but that was a close call when I tested it!
