'Jabber' is confusing, not only for Aunt Tilly, but even for geeks:
Cisco announced today that it has acquired Jabber, an open-source IM and presence protocol used by Google Talk and Gizmo, for an undisclosed sum.
Cisco didn’t get ‘Jabber.org’ the open-source server on the XMPP protocol,[..].
Jabber is an application that we use throughout our office and is one helluva an IM.
Any news on keeping Jabber Open source?
Being devoted to a very friendly user experience in Coccinella, we decided a long time ago to progressively drop all references to 'Jabber'. For instance, whereas Coccinella formerly was described as a 'Jabber client', we do now talk about 'instant messaging client', optionally adding 'using the open standard XMPP protocol' for geeks. Even the JabberLib library is being rewritten from scratch. The long-term goal of this marketing decision is to kill the confusion barrier.
