Perhaps I should have qualified the last post with 'Your milage may

MSN and AIM, and can't hope to compete without either a killer
application, or allowing interoperability. Embracing Jabber might give
them the commercial edge they need. Instead, they try to block it. Was
common sense outlawed while I wasn't looking?
