Chapter 7. Special Software, Special Problems > AIM (AOL Instant Messenger)

7.7. AIM (AOL Instant Messenger)

If you're an online chat junkie, switching to the Mac involves very little disruption to your routine. AIM is available for the Mac, too, and it awaits your download at www.aim.com. Better yet, the minute you fire it up, you'll discover that your entire Windows-version buddy list is intact and ready to use. (That's because it actually lives on the America Online network, not on your Windows PC.)


Tip:

Before you sink fully into the Mac version of AIM, give iChat a try, too. It's a free Mac OS X chat program that's compatible with the whole AIM network, as described on Section 11.2.2.4.
