Some Chinese Characters seem to cripple my English Windows XP. In search of a solution, I stumbled upon this: An English, French, and Japanese QQ Instant Messenger. Great. All the languages I am interested in.
In terms of functions, QQ beats MSN. The best function I like is screenshot button, paste picture to conversation text box function, and the ability to buy virtual items using QQ money. The QQ site had a logo of the 2010 World Expo (=万博=世博) in Shanghai. (The English QQ is based on the 2009 version of QQ, according to my friend)
