What is a MXit PC Client?
A MXit PC client is a program you can install and run on your personal computer (at home or at work) with which you can log into MXit and then chat with your MXit friends as if it was running on your mobile phone. Currently [Aug 2011] there are basicially three major MXit PC clients available to anyone, which you can use to log into your MXit account from a PC.
When MXit started a couple of years ago, the MXit application was only available on mobile phones. Now however there are also a couple of PC clients available. Here I will give a quick summary of each PC client and the pros cons on each one.
MXit EVO is the official PC client released and maintained by MXit. It is a full MXit client which you can install and run on your PC with exactly the same features as their mobile clients. EVO has been written in C# and requires .Net 4 to run. It will also only run on Microsoft Windows OS (XP or 7).
You can download MXit EVO here
Pidgin is a IM chat client which supports multiple chat protocols such as gtalk, msn, aim and many more. MXit has also written a protocol plugin for Pidgin which allows you to add your MXit account to Pidgin. Pidgin is an open source program and written in C and uses the GTK+ library as front-end. Pidgin can also run on both Linux and Windows which is really cool. So if you are tech-savvy and want to checkout the MXit client protocol, you can always find it here... :-).

Daxtop is a proprietary client written in Java by Dax Frost. This is also a Windows ONLY client.

Now you have 3 options for chatting on MXit straight from your PC. I would recommend Pidgin as I am using it myself and its the only client which runs on Linux. :-) That said, I would still recommend it to Windows users as its simple and easy to use, and works! Enjoy, and happy chatting!
