I hvae been thinking about this, I use eJabbid, and iSymphony, Especially because I am very involved in Voip and PBX. But something that I have found very useful, is Slack, very interactive, very usefull and so easy to incorporate into other systems… Eish, its a dream.
Guys is there anybody who uses Lets Chat, I use Slack in an organization,
and the reason is due to the compatiblity and hooks, especially, as the
developers do a lot of PHP applications, so notifications etc happen
Any other SLACK’ers out there, that have moved across.
Its a pity slack cant be hosted individually on user’s own servers.
What is concerning with both Let’s Chat and SLACK… Open-Source hosting
cannot be free forever…Like all good things, commercial temptation takes
over and like g**gle, things do go money hungry.
"Sandstorm.io is an open source hosting platform for personal/private
instances of web apps. Users can upload and install arbitrary software
through a simple app-store-like web interface. In addition to better
privacy, this is the only way to make Open Source web apps viable.
