Well, I use it both on Linux and windows. Yes, windows too... I own an 
old p3 with windows 2k and i don't like to put a lot of stuff (ie 7) to 
get official msn working.

The difference between MSN and AMSN i find are: u can't use external 
emoticon (some site give you a lil program to show emoticon, sometime 
also animated) and not sure for a full VIDEO-AUDIO chat. At least video 
works for sure, about audio never try.
All this is equal both Linux and Windows.
About windows AD (Active Directory i think) i never try .

Ciao !
