Will someone expound upon iChat for me?..
 
I have a new iMac and have never used iChat. I just assume you need another friend who owns a Mac to get any use out of it because of the visuals capability. Is this correct? I'm the only one I know who owns a Mac.

No, iChat uses the AOL Instant Messenger system. You juest need a friend who has an AIM account. The Voice Chat works with AIM but the Video doesn't.

I do believe the video chat/iSight works with AIM 5.9, but not Trinton or whatever the new thing is called.
