A recent post and comments here made me question whether the philosophy I am supporting is better described as computer maximalism? I certainly disagree with lessism where functionality is reduced significantly.

Instant Messaging

Move over iChat, Adium, Pidgin, Trillian, Windows Live/MSN Messenger and other bloatware. Miranda IM and Attym are here. What about Digsby though, more social networking protocols supported but less minimalist? And what about Empathy (UNIX-Like systems answer to windows-only Miranda) which supports more protocols than even Miranda?
