This project develops a third-party plugin for the Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger. It implements the extended version of SIP/SIMPLE used by various products:
Microsoft Lync Server 2010
Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS 2007/2007 R2)
Microsoft Live Communications Server (LCS 2003/2005)
With this plugin you should be able to replace your Microsoft Office Communicator client with Pidgin.
pidgin-sipe-1.15.0 has been build for contrib, should appear on mirrors during the day.
