    Default Alternative to MSN Messenger

    Would anyone happen to know what other clients there are besides MSN Messenger 8.1?

    Do advise.

    Thank you...

    Want to test out if my frequent disconnection has anything to do with the client itself...

    Go open source, try pidgin, no ads/spyware - http://www.pidgin.im/ (originally called gaim)
    works as a client for msn, yahoo, aim, icq, irc + others all at the same time

    pidgin? man, I preferred 'gaim'. anyway, gaim/pidgin is a great piece of software with a very small memory footprint..try it!

    Just upgrade to the latest MSN client. It is the most compatible. 8.1 has several builds. Any disconnection and that would be your network.
