Prefer Aim, then MSN, then Yahoo.

AIM and MSN are on both my computers, yahoo is only on the laptop cause it was alreadmuch junkthere. I'm not installing it with all the extra garbage on the clean desktop now. MSN has too much extra junk to be my fav.

Long time ICQ user (3787015), but have AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, & MSN all in use. AIM by far gets the most use of them all now. ICQ has really gone down hill although I still think it is a much better protocol (with offline messaging and all).

I use Trillian as my program of choice. I have tried GAIM, but didn't really like it as much as Trillian for some reason. I have used Trillian since its pre-beta form and have never looked back.

I like all 3....AIM because everyone and their mom has it, YIM because of the animated smilies....hehe and the MSN because it has descent smilies plus you can always add your own too.

AIM because I don't know anyone that uses anything else. I've found that in this area (New England) mostly everyone uses AIM, and in ohter parts, other messengers are more common.

I like msn messenger the best. A lot of my friends have aim, but I hate it so much, so I rarely use it.
