[JDEV] Looking for a Windows based Jabber Server

I haven't had time to update the JabberApplet for awhile.  Unfortunately I'm
not sure when I'll get the opportunity to update it to the new conferencing
protocol.  I haven't even had the time to look into the new protocol,
however I heard it's not much different than the intermediate/dev version of
the proto that is currently in the applet code.  

So if anyone is interested in updating the applet to the new conferencing
please jump in https://sourceforge.net/projects/jabberapplet/

What I really need for webbased chat to be useful is support in the Jabber
Java applet for the new conference subsystem.

I would be very suprised if Jabber server in it's current state was ported
run on a MS-Windows platform. It would require quite a bit of effort for
or no gain- it would be more efficient to spend a few hundred bucks on a 2U
chassis x86 pc server and install FreeBSD to run the jabber server :-)

What somebody could do with less effort is compile and execute jabber under
the new Microsoft 'unix execution environment' (Not POSIX, this is new). The
drawback to this is that every host that wants to execute the jabber binary
would need a licensed installation of the execution environment, at a cost
around $100 per machine. FreeBSD should start looking better and better to
