Went from AIM to YIM (Yahoo) to Pidgin, then Trillian... but I was on Pidgin the longest ..I’m on FB Messenger now but i hate that FB Messenger kept breaking up Pidgin cause Pidgin was lite on resources on my laptop which was a must ....

MSN and AIM was my sh*t

Widows completely ruined MSN by switching to that Windows Live Messenger B.S, it didn't have the same feel.

Damn. I remember using icq and going into chat rooms and trading pictures I would put a virus in. Once they accepted and downloaded the picture I was able to access their whole computer to do whatever I wanted. Miss them days.
