"The start-up, Jabber.com, hopes to capitalize on companies' needs for software and services based on the freely available new technology."
"What RedHat is to Linux, Jabber.com will be to Jabber.org," Andre Durand, general manager and board member of the company, said in an interview."
"In an open-source development model, the underlying source code for a piece of software is made available to the public. Developers volunteer their labor, and anyone can use the code under the terms of a public license. Jabber.org has spent two years spearheading and organizing such volunteer work on an open-source instant messaging system."
