Projects / GTKYahoo


GTKYahoo is a GTK+ based Yahoo! Pager client. It is functional enough to let you log using your primary profile, and load in your alternate identities and buddy lists. It is usable enough for carrying on conversations with friends and keeping your current status (here/away/busy/etc.) up to date. It can also receive calendar reminders from Yahoo Calendar and notify you when you have new Yahoo mail. It includes a few features not available in the windows version, such as an answering machine and automatic forwarding of incoming messages via email.

            I personally prefer ICQ for most of my non-IRC chatting for two big reasons: 1) ICQ is flexible, and 2) Everyone I know uses it. I also use AIM, but for the most part ICQ is the standard. Yahoo is nice if you want a slim and very basic IM setup, or if you need to talk to other people you meet on the Yahoo games site, but I think ICQ is the better of the IMs out there.
