I just read heise for breakfast and saw that Google Talk
is just Jabber. This is so great! Finally Jabber is used by a big player and
should therefore get more widespread soon. It's really time to get rid of stuff like ICQ,MSN,YAHOO chat and move
to a open protocol. Nothing is more painful then having something like 5 IM accounts so you can talk to everybody.
Anyway I just setup my Google Talk aka. GMail account in GAIM. Google actually has some documentation on their site
on how to use other clients then their own client to use their service *WOHU* The only bad thing now is that Google
Talk doesn't accept server-to-server connections right now, this prevents someone with a jabber.org account to talk
to someone with a gmail account. When the remove this feature Google Talk will really help Jabber.
