Asking about the best performing server is a question that needs more
detail before it can be answered. 

Are you planning on running on a single machine? A single processor? A
farm of machines? A single dual (or 4x, 8x, 16x) machine? Do you need
the server to be Windows, Solaris, Linux, Irix, or something else

Which is more important to you, a high simultaneous user count, or
user-to-user message latency? 

What scale of simultaneous users are you talking about? 10? 1000?
100000? 10000000? 6.02E23? 

Do you need logging and auditing features? Do you need an LDAP / AD
server to perform authentication? Can it keep up with the demand you're
looking for? 

What database do you need? For a large installation (as the commercial
guys would define it) you're going to need a commercial database
(Oracle, SQL Server, etc). What kind of hardware is it going to run on?

The answer to all the above questions factor into the answer for "What
is the best performing server".

This doesn't even touch on feature set. Do you need Single-Sign on?
Active Directory or LDAP integration? Managed Roster Groups?
Conferencing? Regulatory Compliance? PubSub? Remote Management? Chinese
Walls? Various combinations of these features are supported by different
