This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Does it have to be AIM or GTalk? Have you considered looking at an open source xmpp/jabber client such as OpenFire with Spark?

If you go the AIM/GTalk route, you'll depend on them to keep the service up and running.

One consideration is SSL/TLS support, which means messaging is encrypted, so it's much harder for somebody to eavesdrop on conversations.

Both support AIM and GTalk support SSL.

However, it sounds like GTalk doesn't support SSL using the official client, instead you would have to use something like Pidgin.

You should probably also check whether AIM uses SSL out-of-the-box, because it will obviously be harder if you have to talk every user thru the process of turning SSL on.

If it's important that SSL be on by default, you might also want to consider MSN Messenger.
