My two cents
Well, I am quite satisfy with Pidgin since my MSN Messenger having a lot of hard time for me.
Somtimes, MSN is hard to sign in or sign out after login and all my friend blocking me :S
Pidgin will not allow to sign in or out frequently ( check out with my second image above).Besides, It support on different platform like windows, linux and CentOS /RHEL.
It is open source and developer can get the source from http://www.pidgin.im/download/source
