I like xchat. I don't use KDE or GNOME so I tend to not use their D.E.-specific aps much so I haven't tried ksirc. I was used to mIRC when I used window$ and xchat was comfortable to me when I switched.

BitchX is the best. It's simple and text only.

I used to use mIRC on Windows. I have found Xchat to be the most comfortable.

The best advice is to try them and see which you like XChat and BitchX are good places to start.
