Don't forget about aMSN! It's a great pluggable desktop-manager independent MSN clone with a nice installer. Supports webcams and many other features, only drawback is that it can't do full duplex voice chat, but does allow voice clips to be sent. It has a lot of nice plugins (like an Eliza chatbot that can be easily rewritten to use the MegaHAL engine or anything else that can be used as a perl module) http://www.amsn-project.net/
