Re: GNOME Chat and the future of instant messaging in gnome

I agree. Gnome 3 in the beginning had a strong integration with IM
systems. However, over time this has been set aside, and developed
an excellent IM application to the IRC protocol is most commonly
used for communication between developers (among other things).

+1 IRC.  IRC is a heavily used too often overlooked solution and

A new application or empathy, refocused on the use of SIP/SIMPLE
and XMPP/Jingle protocols, may be the best solution for GNOME RTC.

Another new app... sigh.   As a mere user of the GNOME DE [since before
the red-carpet Ximian days] there does seem to be a tragic amount of
re-invention in recent years; abandoning well-working featureful
application in favor of partially complete very limited applications
[like GNOME Music as one example].   It seems, even from my own
experience as a developer on other projects that Open Source actually
struggles to achieve a substantive degree of collaboration.

Note: Do not forget another alternative being updated, as Ekiga.

Yes.  +1 Ekiga
