This is indeed a strange phenomenon. Even amongst the people I
introduced to XMPP, the name “Jabber” is more popular. I think it
related to the fact that XMPP is a four letter acronym, which sounds
technical (especially in DE, where X is a rare letter), while Jabber is
a short word which is somewhat easier to memorize.

I just wanted to throw that in, I take it's not really possible to get
that trademark back, although it is probably the term by which the
network is best known by the end users.
