Within the domain of multi-user collaboration , away from simply presence
and text messaging - yes certainly.
I do think that Jabber is competitive in a head to head comparison of IM
features though.

What the survey seems to indicate , and I've only seen the commentary, is
that corporate users often utilize different platforms for different
messaging and collaboration activities.
So SameTime may be dominant as a multi-user collaboration environment , but
evidently not the primary IM application.
