    You are making fun of Venom's incomparable grasp of the obvious, no? :)

    People are already saying 'Pidgin' is a stupid name, without even looking up it's meaning, however, I do agree that something simpler such as 'Gim', and 'libIm' would of been easier to recognise.

    Still though, it's the product that matters, and that's still awesome :)

    I just compiled this from source in Linux. Looks pretty nice so far; I might start using it in Windows again when the new version is released. :)

    Yeah, it's the one called Scaled_Black_Mod in the Emerald theme manager.

    Kunal, I'm a bit confused. Is that on your Vista box? You applied a theme to Pidgin to make it match the Vista look?
