Hi everyone,
After working with Windows for nearly 20 years, I switched to a Mac.
Bought my MBP yesterday !
Question I have is how to chat with my children when I am travelling.

They all use MSN to chat and I was wondering if I can use Ichat or do I need something else ?

Please forgive my ignorance on this subject, I am all new to Mac.

Any input will be much appreciated.
Cheers

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

MSN Messenger for Mac
It's based on an older version, and has no video or audio function. However it's lightweight and I think it's easy to use and comfortable to look at (tho the Send button is enormous). Supposedly MS is working on a new version, though it likely will not be out for a long time.

The only MSN compatible app I've gotten working with video is Mercury (http://www.mercury.im/ ). However it's a cross-platform app, and as such it's not very Mac-like and it's kinda slow. It also relies on Java, and eats up a lot of RAM.

You might also try Adium. It goes to all the IM platforms and is easy to use.
