Gtalk vs. MSN vs. AOL vs. Skype

Take yer pick!

I use Skype for the most part, then a bit of Gtalk.
Skype is too useful for gaming.

I don't particuliarly favor anything.

...just happen to use MSN because it's what I got installed, I barely IM people at all to begin with.

I don't think I'll ever use vocal chat online, since my forum habits occur while playing games (And I hate speaking over mics anyway).

Now that you mention it, I don't ever voice chat unless I'm playing an online game.

MSN because it's the only IM program I'll use at this point. I'm too lazy to use anything else.

MSN and Skype superior.

Those other two things are inferior.

AIM/AOL simply cause I have lot of friends on it. But mainly I just use it for connected FB chats more than anything.

Skype, because it's awesome. MSN if I'm mobile or talking to my parents or something, mostly 'cause I have it and use Hotmail for email and all...

But Skype for the win! I love that thing.

I'm so tempted to add people from here on it, but I'm derpy and shy.
I've got a couple though, I know! *cheers*

I use Skype and AIM. Skype I love for video calls, although I only do it with a select amount of people. AIM I only have for certain people and I prefer not to use it, to be honest. I used to be a big MSN person but now I don't know many people who still use it.

MSN... don't get how the others work or anything.
Also easiest in my opinion.

MSN for the win, it's the one I've always used and still like. Skype is also okay, though it feels a bit overrated and I only use it for those who ONLY have Skype.

I love Skype.
Or at least I used to. Microsoft bought it, so am I less than pleased.

Now I am currently developing a really long can and a string, which I plan to distribute among my friends.

In which was has that displeased you?
Just the fact the top OS company in the world acquired the top Peer-to-Peer Communication company in the world just like how Google has acquired every right to Youtube.com?
