<disclaimer>I DO NOT get my paychecks from jabber.com</disclaimer>

In my dealings with the people from jabber.com, I feel that they are simply
out to produce a high quality product (server) in the open source community.
If they can make some money off of business, then more power to them, I
don't know about you, but I like a paycheck, and wouldn't it be nice to get
one for developing OS code.

just my $.02.
