I know for a fact that Mandrake Linux is shipping with a Jabber Server (it
is version 1.2 though) and Gabber on it.  It also has Everybuddy and GAIM
which will both talk to Jabber.

I'm a bit concerned that Microsoft is going to saturate the Instant
Messaging market when XP ships.
(Not that I have seen any of the IM features yet - but they have infinite
resources compared to the Jabber project)

To my mind, the only that the Jabber community can even attempt to combat
this sort of marketing is to leverage off other (more popular) free software

Can anyone tell me if there has been any effort to try and get the Jabber
server and a good client distributed with Redhat?  Any other Lunix
distributions?  Is the server code stable enough to distribute this way yet?
Is there any way we can use Microsoft's "icon on every desktop" strategy
against them?

Also, is there any point going down the IETF path again?
