    Good news indeed! Now I wonder if Google's going to buy Skype. Then that would probably become XMPP compatible as well... but speculation.

    I've read somewhere else that MSN is looking for a way to let Messenger users talk to people on GTalk, ICQ and AIM. Since GTalk is Jabber and the other two will also be, I sure hope that MSN will be reachable via Jabber at some point, so I can ditch the MSN protocol for good.

    There's MSN and AIM API out there, you could use to code your own messenger (none of the thirdparty messengers really use it... to restrictive... ignoring their ToS).

    But what if you are using for example OpenSolaris ?

    Actually AIM uses the AIM API's that they release publically as well....and multiheaded clients are a violation of the AIM API ToS if I remember correctly. Which considering AOLs departure from the internet...it's a good chance if it showed up as decent usage on the API server it'll get killed by AOLs 1000 person legal team.

    How does that get me rid of the PROTOCOL?

    My point here. Additionally I don't know of a well known and used thirdpary client using the APIs and using reverse engineered and derivative clients are prohibitten aswell, though...
