I think Voice / Video is vital, especially given Microsoft's new IM platform
technology integrated into Windows XP.

The new Windows Messenger has tight voice & video integration, and is built
directly into Windows XP - thus guaranteeing Windows Messenger's widespread
adoption.

Jabber needs a similar voice, video, conferencing standard that is cross
platform and can be easily implemented in clients.  It's no longer good
enough to know that a buddy is online and can be sent a text message.
Presence needs to convey whether the user prefers text, voice or video
messages.

Jabber currently offers the technology to enable all this however it needs
to be standardized among all clients.
