Portable Gaim

While reading the Gaim Windows section I've found out about Portable Gaim (on the bottom of the page), it reminded me about the days when you had to reinstall Windows 95 every month and the less applications you had to reinstall the better.
"It is relatively easy to set up Gaim to run from a USB Drive. Most of Gaim is very good about not assuming that it is installed; a slightly customized launcher makes it all come together nicely."

Gaim has these features that make it indispensable:
  • I can use the programmer's layout of the official romanian keyboard layout
  • it can use a spellchecker (this doesn't work at this moment in the portable version)
  • it can handle multiple instant messanging protocols
  • it works on multiple operating systems
  • you can carry it on your USB pen drive
I'm hoping for Gaim 2.0 as a Christmas gift.
