Windows XP in 2011.

I have got three Windows 7 netbooks,all HP Mini 210 with different editions of Windows 7. That is Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Professional. And I recently bought another netbook with Windows XP Home Edition, service pack 3. Which I was very lucky to find. Because in England,they are no longer making Windows XP and Windows Vista computers and laptops,only Windows 7. So the Windows XP netbook I bought was the last one they had in the store. I only bought my first laptop a year ago,before that, I was using Internet cafes to write my posts.

How to use Instantbird and Pidgin messengers for IRC chat.

Instantbird and Pidgin messengers are best known for talking to contacts on multi-networks. And they both support Google Talk,MSN,Aim and more. But did you know that you can also use Pidgiand Instantbird to connect to and chat on IRC networks? Until a few days ago, I did not know this myself.Until I searched on the web and found out that you can connect to multiple IRC networks on both messengers.

There are several IRC chat messengers, but they are not very user friendly,in fact several that I tried I could not use at all. And a lot of IRC clients are only free for a trial period. After which time you have to pay to carry on using it.

But Instantbird and Pidgin are both free messengers. And as well as supporting most email accounts,they also support IRC,where a lot of other ordinary messengers don't.
