Default msn in ubuntu

I would like to know if there was any program that worked in ubuntu linux that was as similar to live messenger as possible. doesnt any of the msn-s work in ubuntu? I am using gaim at the moment, but I would like to use something that was more similar to messenger.

Thank you

Probably gonna be limited with linux as far as what you can and can't run. Right now, that means no msn messenger only gaim. Maybe you could find a skin for gaim that looks like msn messenger. sorry.

If running kde you can use kopete, running any interface with a web browser you can use Theres a ton of different messengers for linux, but i can't think of any off the top of my head. Also just found one called amsn which you can install thats supposed to be nice.
