If you're looking for a messaging solution on your Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron desktop, take a look at Pidgin Internet Messenger formerly known as GAIM. Pidgin is available on Windows, Linux, BSD, and other Unixes. This multi-protocol instant messaging application allows the use of AIM, ICQ, Jabber/XMPP, MSN Messenger, Yahoo!, Bonjour, Gadu-Gadu, IRC, Novell GroupWise Messenger, QQ, Lotus Sametime, SILC, SIMPLE, MySpaceIM, and Zephyr. While using Pidgin Internet Messenger users can access all of their accounts at the same time. So if you have one friend that uses Yahoo and another that uses MSN, you can talk to them both at the same time. This makes accessing and managing multiple email/instant messaging accounts faster and much easier.
