I say we target end-users. No need to make "Windows" a part of the
specification, although end-users would certainly encompass a large
percentage of the total.
There are two scenarios:
1) A non-jabber user who knows nothing about jabber goes to the site
to find out what all the fuss is about, and maybe to even get started.
2) A jabber user returns to the site for information related to
jabber clients, help with getting started, to search conference
rooms, to add a transport to their account, find out about scheduled
MUC events, etc.
