XMPP Logo

Welcome to KDETalk.net

This is an open XMPP server for KDE users and contributors. Anyone with an XMPP client such as Kopete or KTp can join it.

What is XMPP?

XMPP (formerly named Jabber) is an open decentralised instant messaging network. Unlike usual proprietary systems like MSN or ICQ, there is not a central server owned by a company, but a lot of different interconnected servers. KDETalk.net is one of them.
