Hi!
I currently use MSN Messenger with my Windoze PC. I am intending to format the Windoze partition just as soon as I have installed Warp or eCS and got it working - lot of issues first!
I am looking around for a replacement for MSN Messenger and AMSN for Linux has been recommended.
Now, does AMSN or any other clone work under OS/2 with or without FreeX86 - or is there a Java based client that works with OS/2?
Also, will these work the same as MSN Messenger - I mean will I be able to talk to people who are using MSN Messenger? I don't want to have to keep Windoze just to run this and it would be nice to have an entirely OS/2 alternative? Has anyone had any experience of mixed messengers?

I use jsuperchat (now called JBuddy) it is a java client which supports MSN, Yahoo, AIM and ICQ. Works well with Java Webstart and Innotek Java 1.4, it is free from http://www.zionsoftware.com/products/messenger/index.html it also supports file transfer (I believe in all clients which support it, however I've only tested this in AIM and ICQ)

I used jmsn for quite some time, but recently switched to dmsn. Both are java clients.

Dmsn did have a build in wpi format on the web page for version 1702. Should be around somewhere, still...

You got me interested. How do you compare dMSN to JMSN ?
