Is it only me or facebook chat via WLM sucks big time. I'm having a really hard time chatting. Sometimes my friends are online and it doesn't show. Sometimes I'm right in the middle of a conversation and they disconnect (which they don't because as soon as they send me a new message, they "sign back in"). I'm kinda sick and tired of that.

Empathy worked well at the time I was using ubuntu but I got tired of that OS and moved back to windows.

Even though Messenger comes out on top, I wonder how many use WLM 2009 vs that abomination called WLM 2011.

I do ; WLM 2011's no-nicknames policy is ridiculous, and I don't care about social networks.

WLM through the official program (though I only have 5 people added). Occasionally Facebook and Skype as well.

I strictly use Windows Live Messenger via Adium.

Facebook Chat via the iPhone app or the Facebook website is seldom used, but it's not that great.

Service, still using MSN (Windows Live) the most for protocol, seconded by Google Talk.
Application, Pidgin for Windows, Adium for Mac, Trillian for Android.

Skype is de facto only IM used over these parts.
