In Response To: People still use Trillian? *NM* (Arithmomaniac)

I have friends I've known for the better part of 15 years that I still talk to on AIM, because we've never found a reason to use anything else. I have friends that are still using MSN for the same reason.

Presumably you all use Skype or something else. Like Facebook.

I think Skype is a flaming pile of shit, and Facebook is a creeper in a van with "Free Candy" written on the side.

Trillian connects to all the services I need, it's roughly four and a half times easier on my memory than Skype, it's simple, it isn't a bloated screen hog like Skype, and it doesn't want to know everything about my life and ask me to be friends with people I don't know and don't care to know.

I realize I'm probably being overly defensive and ranting. My apologies. I just don't see a reason to switch away from the old things I use when all the newer things suck so dramatically and all I want to do is put some text on the screen to someone else in the smallest amount of screen real estate I can manage.
