Oh come on people, if someone is really using google but being concerned about their data...!?!
I for one do not even know what OTR is, http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/OTR only list two dozen options ;-)
However I have given up on google years ago.
Most users wont care. They are rather interested in a working solution that does not crash, is not sluggish and supports their providers.
I have given up on pidgin primarily because of it's unbearably ugly layout. Same with Kopete.
Have a look at Apple and follow the "Reduce to the Max". :-)
And none have ever supported LinkedIn.
Not surprised that Kubuntu never made it into the corporate sector with the slowness of Akonadi on top and a desktop search that hangs you whole computer for 5 minutes at bootup. Businesses do not have shiny new 8-core computers with 8 Gig of ram.
Not in the places where I have been.
My laptop is 10 years old.
