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.
