126.96.36.199 Beta (Aug 18, 2010)
I've never really liked the bloated feel that trillian has had in the past
and I've been avoiding it like the plague.
When I read about what they were doing with this new version I was interested enough to try. What a surprise, They have really outdone themselves.
The interface has been well thought out and the small things like info popups feel like a tip of the hat to the user.
4.1.0.0726 (Aug 4, 2010)
The installer tricks those who jam the 'next' button into installing ask toolbar.
Simply hitting [I Decline] on the ask toolbar screen will continue to the Foxit Reader installer.
6.3 Build 67 (Sep 18, 2008)
Best program to skin windows.
Windowblinds uses hardware acceleration, so it runs faster than window's built in visual styles engine and does the job using less memory while providing a much richer desktop theme.
0.4.0.3 Build 41 (Nov 24, 2005)
First impression: very lite, basic, dull. featureless. but very fast and little memory usage.
After adding a few plugins, skins, icons, and sounds, it's the best damn looking IM client there is, still uses very little memory.
but it does lack file transfering through the AIM protocol (cmon snaphat!) and that is a very important feature IMO.
also I doesnt clear away messages when users come back to online mode. (or I can't find that option)
and it's alittle difficult to setup.
My uses of IM clients went from Trillian to GAIM to MirandaIM, and I think I'm staying with Miranda.
1.3.0 (May 11, 2005)
I switched from Trillian to Gaim and I can't go back. The multi-OS support is great!

I vaguely remember reading that it had to do with legal usage of the name GMail. Something about some company having the name trademarked and google getting around the issue by staying beta status.

A software tool from the Department of Homeland Security?
Sounds like a trap.

Hey, you leave those 98% of americans alone.
They are my meal ticket.
1.3.0 (Apr 13, 2008 - 12:16 PM)
$100 for something that just takes a few click s to get working perfectly.
$0 for something that requires hours of configuring and console/browser dancing to get to work decently.
WINE still has a bit to go.
1.3.0 (Apr 13, 2008 - 11:17 AM)
All it takes is simple maintenance to keep it as fast as new.
I just run bootvis, chkdisk, defrag.
Then for clean up of programs uninstalled I use CCleaner.
I also keep startup programs to a bare minimum.
At the moment It's just RocketDock and WindowBlinds.
And yes I firmly believe some people have bad luck with computers. I have witnessed some of my relatives managing to crash a stable system (such as my own) within minutes of use. It can also be OS specific as I have absolutely the worst luck when it comes to Linux (but that might just be the learning curve).
As for vista. I haven't had any problems at all with it but as a gamer I can't recommend it to any one with out a DX10 capable video card (I fall into this category).
For all those saying bad things about it such as speed, have probably had it pre-installed with the manufacture bonus of bloatware or don't care to take the time to slim it down.
