11.3. iChat

If you're an instant-messaging junkie, good news: All three of the biggies, AIM (America Online Instant Messenger), MSN Messenger, and Yahoo Messenger are available for Mac OS X—and you use them exactly as you did in Windows. (Download them from www.aim.com, www.microsoft.com/mac, and http://messenger.yahoo.com, respectively.) Once you start using the Mac versions of these programs, you'll find that your old buddy lists are intact and ready to use—no importing necessary.

AIM, Yahoo, and MSN Messenger are not, however, the only chat games in town. Apple has created its own take on instant messaging—something called iChat.
