MSN messenger substitute

Is there a program for Linux (currently SUSE 9.1) that can give the user the functionality of MSN messenger?

Any input appreciated.

Try Amsn

gaim (supports several protocols including msn, yahoo)

Kopete (mulit-protocol)

Although none offer full functionality (web cams), all are good alternatives.  Amsn is most like msn messenger.

gaim ( is by far the best Linux messaging client.
It works with AIM, ICQ, MSN, YAHOO, etc. It's usually installed by default with all major linux distros.
