O.P. Google Talk is LIVE!
California Based Google has launched its very own instant messaging application.  Google talk requires a Gmail account and allows you to make free PC-to-PC calls and uses your Gmail address book to talk.

Google Talk lacks emoticons, but features friendly bubbles with your friends latest messages to you.  The application is very small and very easy to use.

Also, if you have another jabber client like Trillian or Exodus laying around, you can connect to the server 'talk.google.com' on the normal jabber port and use it that way, which offers a more powerful interface to Google Talk.

Also, as you can see there is message continuation, which means if you type twice in a row it all goes into the same message. (Sort of annoying)

In the end, all this is is some guy setting up a jabber server on his box and moving the gmail accounts database onto it.
