I use the wildfire server from Jive Software, the python aim and msn
transports, and the gajim client.  The latest version of wildfire has
transports baked in -- I need to upgrade to that. The admin interface
for wildfire is quite easy to use.  We use spark as the default jabber
client at work.

On the commercial side I've used Jabber, Inc's XCP server and
JabberMessenger client.  XCP is great if you need tens or hundreds of
thousands of concurrent users.  The client is ok, but doesn't have any
advanced XMPP features I don't have in gajim, as I recall.  It does
support community groups, which are like predefined rosters.

Best regards,
