Hi,

my favourite Client for Windows is Pandion.

> GAIM, Exodus, Pandion, PSI, Tipic, and Tkabber for Windows. On the MAC we

> WINDOWS - For administratrors, one of the best apps is JAJC. However, the
> interface is not that great for normal users. It is similar to PSI, but
> with more apparent functionality. GAIM on Windows is buggy, and depending
> on the server's SSL implementation, may not connect over port 5223
> correctly. We have standardized on Pandion 2.1.2 which is probably the
> easiest to use Jabber client we have found, but also supports SSL, and
> groupchat. Plus Groupchat is EASY to use with Pandion. The actual design
> asthetic is pretty nice too, users seem to really like this.

> MAC - We have standardized on Adium for the Mac, which supports all needed
> functions, but we may look into the new iChat which supports Jabber on OS
> X Tiger.
>
> LINUX - We haven't done alot of testing on this, but we seem to have
> really good luck with the Linux build of GAIM. There appear to be no SSL
> connect problems, and the program crashes very little to if ever. However,
> GAIM does not support many Jabber specific plugins such as Groupchat and
> Jabber server administration.

> Hope this helps,
