    Yes they all are. I couldn't tell you the diff though since I am not on my computer and I don't use it that often but I do know that the windows versions are better just because more time is spent on developing them. That is because there are more PCs than Macs in homes and businesses.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro Retina 13" • iPhone 6 • iPad Air • and many iPods
    The Mac version has far less features-- fewer smilies, no "winks" or any of that other superfluous stuff. I use it occasionally because people in my office use it and I sometimes I need to contact them from outside the company's premises.

    It works for messaging, and that's about it.

    yeah pretty featureless compared with the windows one.

    Still works like it should though. Get Google Talk instead it's prettier. You'll need 10.4 however.

    Google Talk doesn't have an official client for Mac OS X unless you know something no one else does.

    Msn Messenger For Mac Stinks!!!!!
    I used to have a windows and the Msn messenger used to be great you get audio,video, chat conference all these kewl features.

    When i recently got a powermac g5 suddenly I was in Shock
    on the mac version you dont get audio,video, etc.

    Microsoft neeeds to do something, just use Adium much better, and also you can crack audio and video.
