A complaint about iChat
Doing more migration over from my Fedora laptop to my MacBook.

I really prefer how Pidgin allows me to have a "person" be a contact, who may have one or more IM protocols under them, unlike iChat, which seems to treat each Person/protocol tuple as a high level thing. This causes an explosion of contacts when I have people who have gtalk, livejournal, and AIM accounts.

Apple has this reputation for getting high touch human scale user interface philosophy right, why are they dropping the ball on this one?

Why don't you try Adium then? Seems to do what you are looking for.

Thirding the Adium recommendation, and noting that it's based on Pidgin's code.
