"We believe the instant messaging ('IM') industry offers the
same growth trajectory as e-mail witnessed in the mid-90s," said
Andre Durand, General Manager of Jabber.com. "A pattern that
drove the growth to some approximately 1.3 million e-mail servers
is being witnessed as enterprises demand flexibility and control
over their instant messaging services. This creates a tremendous
opportunity for Jabber.com to become the clear leader in enterprise
IM solutions," continued Durand. "Jabber's 'extensible IM' approach
leverages the application as an ideal gateway to future uses that
incorporate device, mobile and IP Telephony."

open source community, the Jabber development team is attending the
O'Reilly Open Source conference in Monterey, CA this week. The
O'Reilly conference is the largest gathering of open source
projects and developers worldwide and is being attended by major
companies such as VA Linux and Hewlett-Packard.
