See http://linuxshop.ru/linuxbegin/win-l...en/table.shtml for a table of equivalents / replacements / analogs of Windows software in Linux.

Yes, Xchat would do be great for a person migrating from mirc windows to linux. The website of the xchat client is http://www.xchat.org/

Of course, there are a lot of sweet irc clients, such as irssi(which is terminal base though)

I'd go with the xchat. Another good alternative, especially if you use KDE is konverstion.

Coming at this the other way, what are the good open source clients that are also available for the Windows platform ? I'd like to standardise but only got interested after using IRC under Knoppix.

Personally, I find KVirc to be the next best thing to mirc.

I have never liked XChat (no real reason, I just don't like the way it looks. )
