Yahoo Messenger for Ubuntu

I presume most of you must be really missing Yahoo Messenger since you shifted to linux/ubuntu. Apparently there is indeed a Linux version of Yahoo Messenger. It can be found here. Now this one's the official release. However this release has loads of problems. First up, there's no specific software for Ubuntu and also, there's no 64 bit version of this unix version of yahoo messenger.

Fortunately though there's a way out. And this time its a proper app with no issues whatsoever. Its called Gyache. Its a great replacement for yahoo messenger, has loads of features. Spam blocking mechanisms are superb and more importantly looks and feels much like the good old yahoo messenger for Windows. Here's the download page. Try it out!
