I always use Windows live messenger and I wanted to ask if there is a third-party software that I could use? Something customizable maybe?

I want the software to work with my existing hotmail address.

There are many 3rd party software that lets you use hotmail and other services like google talk, Yahoo instant messenger, AIM, etc..

One is Pidgin http://www.pidgin.im/

Another is Trillian http://www.trillian.im/

Another is http://qutim.org/

Or just Hotmail http://www.amsn-project.net/

There are programs that are on some linux distros that have such software, or you can get from the software manager in said linux distro. like Pidgin thats on Ubuntu/Linux mint.
