What works

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.

Workarounds

What was not tested

probably lots of stuff.

Additional Comments

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.
