Proto, I would like to see Emesene added to your Messenger list. It's a very nice Windows Live Messenger clone and I find it to be vastly more stable than aMSN. Great list, by the way. Say, does anyone here happen to know of a way to get true gapless music playback using any Linux music player? Currently I have resorted to using foobar2000 on Wine because it provides more satisfactory playback behavior than the native Linux apps I have tried. And I have tried several. EDIT: This considered... I have used the Music Player Daemon and two of its clients (GMPC and Sonata) and I was very impressed with the fact that it was the only native Linux application that does offer true gapless playback right from the get-go. However, the clients really don't offer as many features as most other music players. This is understandable as MPD wasn't really intended to be used in this manner.
