,----[ Quote ]
| Pidgin, formerly known as Gaim, is a popular Instant Messaging (IM) client
| for Linux. It works with 16 different IM services, including AIM, Yahoo, MSN,
| and Google, and can handle simultaneous connections to as many of them as you
| like. This 10-minute video is a brief introduction to Pidgin that shows how
| easy it is to install, in this case on OpenSUSE 11, how easy it is to set
| Pidgin up to use an existing IM account, and how to find and join an IRC
| channel with Pidgin.

Four Twitter clients for Linux

| Is there a single best of show among these clients? If you like using Opera,
| its Twitter widget is my top recommendation. If you're using Firefox, you
| can't go wrong with TwitBin. gTwitter is a good, general, easy-to-use client.
| For now, I recommend not using Twitux, but that may change as the application
| matures.

| It's hard to pick a clear winner here.
| Of the two native applications, I like Twitux best. It's simple, but it works
| well. The two Firefox extension clients are OK, but I'm not the type of
| person who always has Firefox open and in view, so using them regularly is
| probably not going to happen.
