Jitsi seems to beat most IM's when it comes to being multiplatform and multi-client. For Linux Jitsi beats Pidgin as an instant messenger as it supports video and audio calls and screen sharing for multiple clients. While Pidgin DOES have video support on it's Linux version, it doesn't on windows. If it keeps developing at this, it could knock over Pidgin and be standrad on new Linux Distributions.
Pros: The only up-to-date IM that truly supports video chat on Linux. Improving fast Supoorts Yahoo, ICQ, MSN, AIM, GTalk, Jabber and SIP.
Cons: Doesn't support offline messages on it's Yahoo client (yet). Doesn't support Yahoo video chat. Video support nor screen sharing didn't seem to work between me and my girlfriend due to errors, but at least it seemed like it would work on most other machines.
