    Who would like to use Gaim on their palm? I know i would. And if the IRC that comes with regular Gaim could be on palm I would be a very happy person. If you havn't used Gaim or heard of it it's at;
    http://gaim.sourceforge.net/

    Just wondering if I'm the only person wanting this.

    PalmOS is so different from any desktop computing platform that it would be easier to start from scratch rather than attempt to port gaim to PalmOS.

    Yes I was just looking for that myself.
    I like x-chat best for irc on the pc, in windows as well as *nix, but I like upirc best for palm and use it a lot and it doesn't need to be x-chat.
    Similarly, I like gaim best for IM on the pc, windows & *nix, and I want a universal IM client on palm, but I dont really care if it's gaim or something new.

    If you like upirc for the palm, I'm wondering if you've ever tried ptpChat before and what you think of it? I've been using it (it's an irc client for the palm) and it's been really great so far.

    I preferred upIRC visually over ptpChat.

    I don't see much difference in the two visually.. However, ptpchat can run in the background which is a huge plus.

    If the Gaim developers are willing and able to port Gaim over to PalmOS and later ALP when released then that would be great. It's frustrating having to purchase additional third party software some of which is typically included with other manufacturer devices.

    Causerie and Verichat are the closest match to GAIM/Trillian on a PC...neither supports IRC though but Causerie supports Jabber (and in turn, Google Talk).

    I'm happy with VeriChat, unless the Gaim developers are planning to implement the OSCAR protocol so users can have the mobile device icon...
