"IRC, otherwise known as Internet Relay Chat, is one of the founding areas that established a free exchange of information. Whether you're looking for information on computer hardware or how to set up your *BSD system, there's a channel out there for you."
"Choose from a wide array of servers all over the world, and you've got one of the most circulated forms of communication on the internet. Best yet, IRC can run on nearly any system with at least a telnet client."
"If you're not into telnet, IRC provides many command-line clients, as well as graphical clients. Graphical IRC clients include BitchX, Kirc, XChat, and a load more. Of course, if you still work from your command-line, clients like ircII and Epic are very widely-spread and extremely popular as well."
