gaim :(

I've been running Gaim (1.5.0) just to play with the internal chatting, so I tried connecting it to the talk server. (It's especially fun to see Gaim screenshots on the help pages.)

But it caused me to remember why I don't normally run Gaim: it's already crashed. I don't know if it's just 'cause IM is fundamentally hard or the Gaim team is too fragmented or whatever -- in this particular case, more likely that the Jabber plugin is buggy -- but I've always been a little disappointed by using Gaim. (Like: what's with all the useless buttons on the chat windows?)
