    I'm sure there is some GTK die-hard out there who loves it so much that for a change something new is written in GTK that he'll buy Trillian right away.

    Unhappy yahoo

    Yahoo is highly popular in Asia and its the only way I can communicate with family. There is no Yahoo (With Webcam!!!) support on Linux. Guyachi (or whatever) is dead and Kopete is almost useless. So where oh where can I do Video Chat through Yahoo with my family?. If Trillian can do that, I'm sold. I don't care if it's proprietary. No, I'm not going to use Skype and neither is my family.

    Default Yeah, and ...?

    Why should the Linux community be excited about Trillian any more than we were excited about Nero?

    Trillian on windows is an excelent chat software.
    If the plug-ins are coming to linux then i am happy.
    Its the only way i have to use skype, gtalk and facebook chat in a very lightweight and costumizable software for free..

    Yes, i don't understand why pay for it.
    Since it will be free on final version.

    I see the payment method for the beta some sort of contribution for the full native support and integration to ubuntu.
    I guess most ubuntu users should consider at least pay a 20$ subscription in the first year.
    Its one of the most things i miss from windows, a good IM, pidgin and empathy is not up to this.

    Hmm. That's funny. I don't know how lightweight it is, but I have both Empathy and Pidgin doing gtalk and facebook chat. Never tried Skype. Is Skype a deal breaker for you?

    Yep, i have a lot of people there.
    Especially when skype came to replace MSN.

    I know that empathy and pidgin are lightweigh, but skype it isn't, and on windows even less.
    Its not just the fact of being multi protocol, its the sync, history, and a massive lot of features and costumizations that its available to choose from.

    Unfortunaly the free version have some ads, but they are not massive ads, not animated flashs or something, they are very subtle.

    I know that linux people will be like, we don't need this, be when its free give it a try and feel the difference

    Whatever happened to Ventrilo coming to Linux?

    In their forums, they created a section for Linux back on May 30, 2005.

    Did the Ventilo creator die or something?
