If you can do GTalk, and there is software to bridge it to MSN, what is the point of an Asterisk channel?

@ZX81: A native solution is better because of less processor/memory load, less delay in signal, less maintenance, no need to create a Google-account and run a seperate client like Gtalk.

Which open source product (not third party service) can bridge between Gtalk and MSN? Does it run on linux, do you need a running Gtalk client for it?

Support for this has been requested before and I believe there is an open bounty for the feature on the wiki at voip-info.org. If you want to see this implemented in Asterisk, either contribute to the bounty, develop the doe yourself, or wait for this to be implemented. I am going to suspend this issue for now, but please feel free to reopen when either you or another developer are ready to submit a disclaimed patch that implements this. Thanks.
