    I don't know if you can log on using ICQ but since AIM and ICQ can chat with each other you talk to ICQ users

    They probably would implement it if Microsoft would allow it.

    I didn't quite mean that. I'm just speculating that Apple probably asked Microsoft if they could implement it, and Microsoft said no. Maybe Apple never asked at all, but I think they would have considering they want to make it easier for their users to communicate with others, and would try a multiservice IM approach like AdiumX. I'm just spinning off cracked theories, don't mind me.

    Well, there's always Adium, Fire and Proteus(sp?).
    They can connect to AIM, MSN, Yahoo and some others. All at the same time.
