Well, signed up to it. Very easy to get online with it, and to start using it under Linux, which impressed me greatly. Have it running in GAIM on there. One thing I do like is that if you reply to an e-mail in gmail, it adds the person as a potential contact immediately. I suspect partly with Google Talk that it is something the financial sector in the states had suggested they do, and they have done so in a very cheap and effective manner. Their share price went up 2% in the states within a day. Nice.
