Does Trillian still support XP? Or, at least, install and work OK on it?

I am not certain. All I know is that there is a trillian account, which did exist for some time but it was not originally able to act as an IM. I first became aware of it when their Astra version came out, which I believe was in XP days. That is what my question is, at which version can you actually use the Trillian account for IM purposes? I had not used it until after AOL made their original annoucement, so I am unsure as to when the Trillian client actually became capable of it. And also, I have only used it on Windows 7 systems for some years now.

I thought that Trillian was just a skin.  You could use Trillian as a AIM client, it worked with Yahoo, and MSN.  Basically I thought Trillain was just a IM aggregator.  So it wouldn't make a difference, Trillian just connected to AOLs servers as if it was AIM itself.  Trillian was like Pidgin, the universal chat client.   ICQ probably still works :P

Yes originally it was just an program that could connect to multiple IM servers, but (at least) when their Astra version came out, they added a Trillian account and some unspecified time later (unknown to me) they made it so you could use Trillian exclusively to IM without any of the 3rd party IM servers.
