    Whats the deal with iChat?
    I have been using skype for some time but I wanted to start using iChat for screen sharing. So I opened up iChat for the first time and followed all the instructions and all I get is the Bonjour window. I can't add buddies, I can't do anything. Whats the deal, I have a .mac account?

    Thanks,
    Vnote

    I have been a long time Skype user, I do not have a .MAC account, but just the other evening i registered an AIM account and can now use all the features of iChat including screen sharing.

    You aren't using AIM, just the AIM account within the iChat app

    It's a Mac. Not a MAC. MAC is an acronym for Media Access Control, a network thingy whippersnappers can understand.

    iChat allows .mac accounts, AIM and Gtalk accounts. You can also use jabber with it's complicated procedure...
