IRC Clients

There are lots IRC clients out there in the world. Here is a short list (sorted by popularity in LUG)





It would rock to get a list of channels and their uses I'll include some that I know, and there uses for the final draft we should leave some out

  • #mtu General discussion for both student and alumni.
  • #linux General Linux discussion, and help
  • #beginners A place for newer people to Linux to hang out and get help. (Will have to ask Lego or ehntoo to be sure)
  • #MTUstudents General discussion for current MTU students.
  • #botsex For letting bots talk to each other in an attempt to being down the IRC server
  • #ballpit "We're adults now, so it's our turn to decide what that means." No adults allowed ;)
  • #prfc This channel is for PFCR members to let loose and talk about anything and everything science/PFRC related.
  • I'm not sure what the alumni channel is called anymore, they changed it.


I know nothing about this, we have it. Jabber
