I generally agree and I'm generally quite happy with Jitsi, but I'd like
to point out some issues:

1. I was not abot to get "bonjour" instant-messaging working. Does Jitsi
support it? This is soemthing I want to use on the LAN at work.

2. The user interface could use some improvement. It feels a bit out of
place. Not a deal-breaker, though.

3. I haven't used empathy extensively. I used pidgin. Jitsi seems to
consume more resources than pidgin.
