New proteus, woohoo

For those of you that don't know, Proteus is a multi IM client for OS X. Like trillian.

I wasn't a fan of the first one and I seemed to have problems with MSN on it, but seeing as they release a beta of the new version 2, I thought I'd give it a try. One of the major things for me was the introduction of file transfer, gootta love it. But it's the silky smooth UI that has got me hooked, especially the way the windows work.

So, people with OS X, give it a try. Here's a couple of screenies.

You can see the way all the different convo's are bundled into one window with the names on the left in the drawer. That will also inform you of a new IM and the status and stuff of the user. Also you can see next to tim's name the little pencil subtley reminding me that he's typing.

Cool but they should make a *nix version, that would make it even cooler.

I saw it on the macnn forums cause the creator sometimes posts there. I downloaded it the other day but I couldn't get MSN to work on it, that's why I've been on and off for a few days. I don't know why it worls now but it's sweet. MSN 3 can go in the trash now :p

seriously, is it that hard to code something for windows that not only works well, but looks nice and has a intuitive layout?

coding for windows is a P.O.P but the ui follow a guideline like mac programs follow apples guidlines
