A friend once said to me: "I hate Jabber, it's always down!"  True, jabber.org 
had gone down for several minutes while he was in the middle of chatting, on 
multiple occasions.  He can be rightfully angry about that, but I had to 
explain to him that it was jabber.org, not "Jabber" which was at fault.

From then on I always recommended Google Talk to new users.  It doesn't really 
matter if Google has better uptime.  The point is to get the blame right.
