4 Works great and is probably the only one I use, but it would be better if it was automatically set to launch when you boot since you have to open it twice to use it (you can do that with startup settings manager in Lmint), and better notification support would be fabulous!

4 Beautifully clean interface, and easily the number one IM client if you use multiple IM accounts. The lack of support for video and microphone conversations is probably it's biggest downfall. Apart from the support for multiple IM systems, the plugins are a good reason to use Pidgin over other IM clients.

5 Super flexible, extensible, IM client. I've been running it since the early alpha days (back when it was even uglier and called Gaim) and it's a hard one to beat.

3 Awesome, awesome interface for multiple instant messaging protocols. I use it for pretty much everything. :D NOTE: Don't forge to mention the Purple Plugin Pack in the Description for added functionality. ;)

5 awesome cross-platform IM client. Even better if you install the facebook chat plugin (that's what people are now on nowadays)

4 Better than most network-specific clients. You should know that the saved usernames and passwords are stored in a plain text file that anyone with access to your computer can read: see file:///home/YourUserName/.purple/accounts.xml
