so why don't google have this as a feature of google talk? you can see and chat to your aim/yahoo/msn friends. or am i missing something and this isn't as easy as it sounds.

I forgot about the MSN/Y! clients ages ago....I setup that thingy and now talk to all my buddies from the Gmail chat.

What I'd love to have Google do (beside interpolability between networks) is to build their own Jabber server. (like this list of servers: jabber.org/network/oldnetwork. ...)

When did you dream that ? yesterday ?? LOL

Yes. It works fine (> 1 sec lag). And you can talk to any of your friends over any other network. Note that file-sharing and voice is not yet supported.

It's a pitty, one cannot receive txt messages sent to him, while he is offline :-(This is the main reason, why I still don't use GTalk...
