Jabber servers are available here. Since you didn't mention your distro I can't say, but most distros have a packaged binary available.

Just out of curiosity, if he only needs chatting, is Jabber a better choice than IRC, and if so, why?

I would answer "yes" for a lot of reasons. Jabber does everything IRC will do and a good bit that IRC will not. Don't get me wrong ... I love IRC (I'm always on at least one server, and IRCop on a couple), but since this sounds like a corporate environment, jabber will impress the management (and not confound them with stuff they don't understand).

"You mean it works just like AOL!?! That's great!"
"Yes sir, and with XYZ client, you can even talk to your AOL buddies and the company employees with the same program."
"That's great! You deserve a raise ... You're not getting one, but you deserve it!"

Something like that.

Linux Chat server with Windows Client

Hi,

I m using Openfire (Java based) and its working cool.

-OpenFire Server for Linux also available for windows
- Spark Windows Client

Advantage:
-Reduce Internet bandwidth
- Monitoring and auditing
- Public IM Gateway like yahoo,Google, MSN,ICQ etc.,
- Web based management

DisAdvantage:
- More memory (In my machine it takes 65M)
- Some times its very slow when you using another Java oriented application.
- No Folder sharing option

Overall performance is good.

Regards,
Elangovan B
