I'm working a bit with Jabber. We have an experimental server set up. Clients are really shaky right now but I was able to connect to jabber.org via the WinJab client and communicated with one other person in a group. Cool! I see a lot of potential in Jabber -- it's worth investigating. I'm not having such good luck with the other clients -- perhaps I just don't know how to use them yet. In particular, I'm a bit annoyed with the Tcl/Tk client; I can *almost* use it.

Jabber has been designed from the ground up to serve the needs of the end user, satisfy business demands, and maintain compatibility with other messaging systems."
