The IM Client Formerly Known As GAIM

review from BillWebb, Apr 2007, permalink Instant Messaging

 

From Clif:

I've got an older copy of Gaim, the free and open source multi-IM chat client. I keep it on a USB thumb drive so that I can take it with me wherever I go. It gives me access to MSN, Yahoo, AIM, and GTalk all in one place.

 

I was very surprised to find that the name of Gaim has changed!

 

Quote from Bill:

The Little Guys could continue building a client that communicated with the AIM platform, but they had to change the name so that it didn't reflect anything about AOL's trademark. read the rest of the article
