Instant Messaging with Kopete

These days it seems like more and more people are using instant messaging. If you have teenagers in your house, you already know that having IM is more important than having a second telephone line. Fortunately, the Move CD comes with its very own instant messenger program, Kopete. This handy little program lets you connect to all the major messaging networks such as AIM, MSN, Yahoo, and Jabber—and it lets you do it all at the same time! That means you can chat with any of your friends without worrying about which network they’re on.

To start Kopete, just click K Menu Surf the Internet Chat. The first time you launch Kopete, it displays a contact window (just like a buddy list in AIM) and a Configure window, where you can make several choices that affect Kopete’s behavior. Just click through the Appearance and Behavior choices to see what options are available to you. The default choices are pretty good, and I seldom find the need to change them.
