Adium on Mac...
On Windows I'd suggest using Pidgin (slow development sometimes it seems...) or Trillian. :)

"Messages" (iChat) in Mac OS supports Facebook chat very well (Jabber protocol), no need for a third party software ;)

I use fTalk. Has video chat too. Just avoid installing the toolbar.

I'm aware of that, however, as much as I like the benefits of Messages, you can't get me to move towards it as I'd lose some precious features and I like to keep my messaging as open (as in OSS) as possible.

Adium is open-source, so even if they stopped developing it, it'd be fairly easy to export the chat logs to sensible formats.

I REALLY like the integration with Mail though, as in seeing that someone is online or offline.
Totally dig that, but oh well... :(

Can't have everything I guess...
