Indeed. I know this thread was about (G)UI design, but I'd like to 
echo what Tom says; I guess many of you that frequent the jdev room
will know my feelings about GUIs and such ;-) - I'd just like to point
out that 90% of the stuff I do with Jabber doesn't involve a (G)UI
at all.

I *know* Jabber's primary face with the media is still Open IM, but
that doesn't mean it's the only face.

p.s. cheers for stpeter for introducing Tom to Jabber with his great
article :-)
