Sweet! I didn't know.. Or I knew about Pebrot but it didn't work for me and thats why I started this. Yeah yeah, Tmsnc will hopefully have features that no other client have :P

There *are* more console MSN clients
"The reason why we decided to start this project is that now there is no client for Unix and clones that doesn't require Xfree86 to be running. We feel that the simplicity of a CLI interface is much nicer than a graphical interface."

And right you are. But one thing here isn't quite true... There are at least three ways to get onto MSN without X:

CenterICQ - http://konst.org.ua/centericq/

pebrot - http://pebrot.sf.net/

BitlBee + any textmode IRC client - http://www.bitlbee.org/ http://www.irssi.org/

But well, since CenterICQ and pebrot both don't have a very comfortable user interface, and because not everybody is an IRC-addict, I'm not going to complain. ;-)
