I am looking to install basic instant messaging (ala text messaging with a cell phone). I'm not interested in chat rooms, etc. I'm looking for a basic way to replace the texting functions of a cell phone with a similiar thing PC-www-PC. Just me and tow or three others. Don't want to get exposed to all the spam IM, and "people" trolling with IMs for "contacts" personal or otherwisae.
Any suggestins to sort out the 100s' of hits I get when I search engine it? etc. Thank you all.
