I just started using it, but so far it looks very encouraging. The install was smooth. My first Google chat session worked ok. Yahoo seem like it works too.
What does not
The interface seems a little off. the text entry portion of the chat window seems too small. But when I start typing, it resizes to a more normal size.
What was not tested
probably lots of stuff.
The version of Pidgin in Lenny Backports has not worked for Yahoo for quite some time. It is not clear (to me at least) how long we will have to wait to get a native of Pidgin on Lenny that works with Yahoo again. Oddly enough wine+pidgin seems like a good work around until 2.5.8 or some later version makes it to Lenny Backports.
