AIM, or America Online Instant Messanger
is a method of chatting over the internet with specific people based on a
user name and an instant messaging protocal. To use it, one would normally
download AIM from the link above, but then you have to see America
Online's advertisements, so I use Gaim, which is an open source
instant messaging client that is not only free, but also advertising free.
You may have to download AIM first to get a user name, I'm not sure,
anyhow Gaim supports mutliple instant messaging protocals such as jabber
and ICQ as well as AIM.
