OK, so it's not what you're thinking. ☺

Colin and I were playing with Gizmo 2.0 last night. Before we started, I wanted to try out its IM feature, so I clicked the “IM” button. Up came the prompt:

Account name or Jabber/XMPP ID:

“Hmmm”, I said. I entered my regular Jabber ID and IM'd myself. Up popped a tab in Adium, from mygizmousername@chat.gizmoproject.com.

Now thoroughly in an experimental mood, I added a Jabber account to Adium, with the JID set to mygizmousername@chat.gizmoproject.com and the connect server set to chat.gizmoproject.com.

Sure enough, it works flawlessly. Contact list changes in Adium carry over to Gizmo and vice versa. The only Gizmo feature missing in Adium is voice chat. ;)

So, if you don't like that Gizmo doesn't support Adium message view styles (Skype does), just use Adium. ☺
