    I don't have that many contacts in iChat, so I still revert to using Yahoo and Skype.

    i very rarely use ichat, i have like, three friends on my list and we don't chat too often with ichat. i use Adium, and I use message styles and contact list skins to make it look like ichat. :)

    I use iChat all the time. AIM seems to be the IM protocol of choice of my friends in the US. I've been using it since college when it was bundled with Netscape Communicator. But my friends & colleagues here in the Philippines tend to use YM. So I use iChat for AIM and YM for YM (duh).

    I used to use Adium to cover both, but they haven't updated Adium to take advantage of YM's new voice & video services.

    I do, along with my block mates. We use it to share notes during class, especially when we're grilled for recitation.
