From: “AOL adopting XMPP aka Jabber“:
Proprietary protocols are things from yesterday. Today, Opensource technologies are taking over the world! AOL / ICQ has just launched a test server using XMPP, an open technology. This means that you’ll soon be able to talk to your ICQ / AIM contacts via Jabber. Google has already started using it. So who’s next? MSN!
Wow, I’m getting all my wishes these days… I was semi-joking about it the other day. I guess I should do that more often! ;)
