This is the (very late)part two of our mini-series about why the tech preview KDE Telepathy 0.1 rocks.
One thing I really wanted to do with KDE Telepathy was making setting up accounts as easy as possible. Setting up common accounts like Facebook or Gmail should be only a few clicks away. It has all the server settings already set up, all that's needed is your name and password. We've tried to do this in a way that keeps things simple but still keeps really advanced options still available.
KDE Telepathy supports text chat in a wide range of different accounts. As many as Kopete, and more than Empathy.
KDE Telepathy is still very much a work in progress, but results are looking promising.
