Le alternative a Windows Live Messenger

Ci sono svariati motivi per cui una persona non possa usare Messenger. Dalle motivazioni ideologiche – è sviluppato dal capitalismo americano – a motivazioni più tecniche – come un computer non molto potente – da motivazioni pratiche – come non avere Windows – a motivazioni molto più oggettive – come un non-mi-piace. Per contro il protocollo instant messenger di MSN (ora diventata Windows Live) ha una diffusione non indifferente e soprattutto senza rivali. Fortunatamente esistono miriadi di programmi, molti multipiattaforma, che possono sostituire il nostro MSN Messenger. Non senza sacrifici, però: spesso occorre rinunciare a molte funzionalità. Eccovi elencati i quattro principali client messenger alternativi a MSN.


Miranda Instant Messenger | Sviluppato da Miranda IM 
Download (disponibile per Windows) | Sito web ufficiale

miranda-im_logoE’ senza dubbio il più scarno, il più spoglio e il più semplice. A vantaggio di leggerezza, velocità e semplicità d’uso. Con Miranda dovrete dimenticare mille inutilità del Messenger originale, come trilli, icone animate, webcam. Ha il vantaggio, non indifferente, di permettervi di collegare più account contemporaneamente. Non solo MSN, ma anche Jabber, AIM, Yahoo, Google Talk e molti altri ancora. Certamente consigliato a chi cerca qualcosa di estremamente leggero, senza ricamature varie e utile a chattare in tutta semplicità. Disponibile solo per Windows, presenta una libreria di plug-in non indifferente.


Trillian | Sviluppato da Cerulean Studios 
Download (disponibile per Windows) | Sito web ufficiale

Trillian è un client messenger completo, compatibile con i protocolli AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo! e IRC. Supporta le conversazioni audio, le conversazioni multiple, il trasferimento di file e molte altre caratteristiche standard. Permette inoltre di collegare più account, di personalizzare la skin, di salvare la cronologia delle conversazioni e le notifiche della barra di sistema. Purtroppo, unica pecca, non ha alcuna possibilità di aggiungere plug-in, rendere la personalizzazione limitata. Un pero peccato, perché Trillian è il migliore tra i quattro qui presentati.

Altro limite è il supporto esclusivo a Windows, rendendo la diffusione di questo client altamente limitata. A venire in supporto di questa pecca è la prossima versione del client, ora in fase beta: Trillian Astra, che estenderà il supporto a MacOS e iPhone. Per Linux credo sarà necessario attendere molto tempo.

Per finire, esiste anche un versione a pagamento, Trillian Pro, che estende alcune funzionalità.


Pidgin | Sviluppato da Pidgin Project 
Download (disponibile per Windows, Linux e MacOS) | Sito web ufficiale

pidgin_logoClient open-source che permette di collegare simultaneamente più account, anche di protocolli differenti, come MSN, ICQ, Yahoo, AIM, Google Talk e molti altri. Supporta solo le funzionalità basi dei rispettivi originale ma, grazie ai plug-in, permette di personalizzare e aggiungere le caratteristiche desiderate. Consigliato a chi usa Linux o, sotto Windows, a chi usa più protocolli per rimanere in contatto con i propri amici.


aMSN | Sviluppato da aMSN Project 
Download (disponibile per Windows, Linux e MacOS) | Sito web ufficiale

amsn_logoPresentato e descritto come un vero clone di Messenger, aMSN è ben lontano da esserlo. Graficamente somigliante al vero MSN, supporta molte sue funzioni – come gli stati personali, possibilità di ricevere messaggi in modalità offline, webcam, trilli, emoticon, messaggi vocali, conversazioni multiple – e ne aggiunge di nuove, come la completa personalizzazione e la possibilità di estendere le funzioni grazie ad un’ottima libreria di plug-in.

Tra tutti i client provati risulta essere il più scadente ed instabile. Decisamente è quello che consiglio di meno tra le quattro alternative.



Naturalmente non esistono solo queste alternative, ma molte di più. Per finire altre due alternative: un leggerissimo clone di Windows Live Messenger 8.5 che non necessita di installazione ed è l’ideale da usare su computer pubblici – inserendo semplicemente una chiavetta usb – e i messenger online, come Meebo (link al sito) o MSN WebMessenger (versione ufficiale di MSN, link al sito).

    Si Amsn è il più instabile credo, però su linux almeno usando la versione svn si riesce a fare videochiamate trilli emoticon personalizzate, aprire la casella di posta hotmail mandaree ricevere file poi tutte le altre cose che permettono i vari plugin.
