how is it better to wait for the dumb program, if it even does come out?
do you think they will come out with Google Talk Plus for Macs Only?

if you have a mac and want to talk using your gmail name (why would you anyway, just use AIM like the rest of the population) either use iChat or download the free program AdiumX. Adium can connect to your yahoo, google, AIM, and other names through one simple program. You can also be on multiple names at once so you don't have to be fumbling back and forth between programs.

just a little FYI for those who cared

Windows emulators tend to run slow on the mac and are not worth the time. I have previously used virtual pc and yes I could use it and run some things that i had to run, but It was not a substitute for a windows box.

I just downloaded it onto my work machine. I'll probably catch hell for it, since it's not an "approved program" yet, but who cares? I'M BIG BROTHER, DAMN IT!!!! Anyways, I'm in the process of adding people to my contacts list. Add me, if I haven't gotten to you: RogueRonin990@gmail.com wooha!!

I just read a great article about it in Forbes and they said a Mac and Linux version is coming.

They're also going to be adding lots of functionality in coming weeks, including the ability to make calls using the public phone system.

Just make sure you flatten your machine, then install XP. Just to avoid any...complications.
