I'd love to hear a good talk on Jabber.  Unfortunately I'm far away.  So
far I've used the jabberd server and though it worked, the lack of
administrative tools was troublesome (i.e. you do administration by having
each user register and then add all the buddies and if you want to do
extra you open up a telnet client and do xml by hand).  I've also been
playing with the ejabberd server which usu. works well, but hasn't been my
favorite either.

So even though the protocol has some nice capabilities, the software is
lagging (at least the free stuff).  I can't complain though, it is all
