Originally posted by drj000 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!"
