[ubuntu-uk] Using Windows live

My better half wants to communicate with a relative in Canada, who has told
her its easy, "you just click on the Windows Messenger icon on your desktop"

However, given that my better half is looking at a Ubuntu desktop, it isn't
as easy as suggested.  I know nothing about Instant messaging, but now have
to sort this out.

Can I assume that she will need a Windows Live account, can she sign up for
this from Ubuntu or is Microsoft going to say this isn't Windows go away.

I gather from what I have read that Empathy will work with Windows Live,
once she has an account.

However, does anyone have any advice that will help me avoid any obvious
problems, or suggestions of a best approach.

Many thanks,
