I've actually been using Trillian on Linux LONG before it came to BlackBerry! Then when they released their beta version (when it was still free) I jumped on board and have been using it since off and on.

A few months back, when it came out of beta, I had to purchase it but it was DEFINITELY well worth it!

Good luck to all the contestants! The 100 winners will most definitely like Trillian :)
