07:57 am: to add another item to the list of IM clients I use, I have started using Google Talk. username same as on here. if anyone needs a gmail invite then i do have 50.

Google Talk is based on Jabber, the only real IM standard, which is really good as it means that I can use gaim to connect already, without someone having to hack it. Woo.

Woo, jabber

From what I understand, it looks like google is just providing their own jabber client. And an account on their jabber server if you have a gmail account. Well if it makes jabber more mainstream - Hooray!

I have been trying to keep my eyes open for a decent jabber server for a while, perhaps a google one would fit the bill especially if they get round to installing gateways, at which point I could ditch MSN, hooray!

So, can I have an invite please?

I would go with it but don't want another e-mail account, shame I can't use one of my existing accounts as I'd have to use either proteus or ichat on the mac anyway.

Long term that's what I like about the idea of jabber, one account that works with everything.

Lord knows I have enough email addresses already (for all practical purposes an infinite number).

I have been wanting to move to jabber since I got Tiger but every time I look into it I get bogged down by the question of which server I sign up to, I suspect google will be a good option especially as most of my contacts will probably be on the same server.

I can't wait for the day when I can do without running iChat and AdiumX at the same time, depending on who I am talking to.

yes, my current setup is to run proteus, ichat, skype and x-Lite. Mostly I tend not to run iChat as the only person I know with an account has skype anyway. Proteus will do jabber already so I'll probably end up dropping iChat unless they bring out a PC version for people to use.

I am hoping for some wonderful jabber/openid/google synergy. Which reminds me, I must make mediawiki support openid.

Centericq 0.4.21 works with gTalk

I know the new version has support to GTalk. The problem for me is the configuration, I can't do this. ;) But I have one hour looking for.
