There's only two talk windows I know of out there for the Mac Cornell
version. The one that comes builtin to CU-SeeMe (0.85 and later..or the
plugin for 0.83) and then GeekTalk.

I haven't used GeekTalk much, but it's the only one that allows for
private chatting (among a lot of different other things). Once you get it
setup like you want with Fonts, etc. then it does everything the original
Talk Window does and a lot more. If nothing else, it lets you change the
colors of various text messages which helps me out a lot. (Also why I
dislike using the PC Enhanced CU 2.1.2 version when I chat a lot).

So..while I don't use the Mac version very much at all, I definitely
prefer GeekTalk.
