And i can certainly vouch for the Danish one (jabber.dk) on which i use the
MSN transport as well.
However, having a KDE server for those in a country where there is no local
server, or a reasonable one would to me at least seem a really good idea. It
would also be a way of showing your alegiance to the KDE project (virus
marketing is our friend, as has so often been established, just look at
Firefox). So i'm very much for letting users sign up and get a users.kde.org
jabber address, in addition to the options already present :) And especially
the suggestion from Martin here, for using the local servers primarily, but
with the added extra of giving an easy option to select to use the kde.org
address. Anyway, enough rambling about this from me, carry on ;)
