I liked gaim because it is open-source, but I stopped using it in favor of trillian pro because gaim (for whatever reason) didnt allow me to send pictures via aim and it also seemed buggy. I think it has alot of potential, however - perhaps in future builds, things will work much smoother. Perhaps others have had better luck with gaim.

trillian runs very well. It features skinning, games with buddies, plug-ins, and secure chat (with other trillian users). The downside is it costs money (at the least the pro does - I didnt like the free version that much - very crippled - but it does the multi-protocol thing quite well). trillian file transfer is very buggy though.

I have heard good things about http://www.miranda-im.org/ but havent tried it.
