Right as i own a Mac Mini i have payed for a mac account, so i can use iChat, i was wondering if any other people talk using iChat or do they use other programs to talk to there mates that have a mac account
Do you mean that you signed up for a .Mac account? I used to have one of those... it was the biggest waste of money, ever. There are constant outages of 8 hours or more affecting both email, web hosting, and their calendar service.
Do a bit of searching for some of the complaints about the service if you haven't already signed up for it and are thinking about doing so!
I have got a mac account, but no one i no has got one s i can not use iChat so i am using aMSN i have used other programs but i prefer this one, as to me it has more features than the other one
Both @mac.com and regular AIM addresses are interchangeable. You can add regular AIM users to iChat without a problem. Same goes for 'standard' AIM users, they can add @mac.com screen names to their buddy list.
