Happy 15th!

| 15 years ago, on January 29th 1994 Rob (lilo) Levin first joined the channel 
| #linuxneo on the EFNet IRC network. This date has since been referred to as 
| the conceptual moment, the foundation, the cornerstone which later led to the 
| network you now know as freenode.   
| Since that January evening in 1994 — the original channel made some network 
| moves before it became it’s own network; irc.linpeople.org in 1995 — a few 
| name-changes later and we’re freenode. Peaking at just over 52,000 daily 
| users, spread across FOSS and other peer-directed communities.   



IRC Clients for Linux Part 2: List of 5 CLI Clients

,----[ Quote ]
| As a conclusion, I strongly recommend Irssi, followed by WeeChat and Epic4.
| The first two are powerful enough, flexible, documented and have scripting
| support, while the latter is a little harder to use (at least in the
| beginning) and it has its own scripting language. Despite this, Epic4 has the
| advantage of giving you total control over how you want its interface to look
| like, and it also provides many scripts on the official website for
| customising it. BitchX is too old now and it's no longer updated, while
| TinyIRC offers only the minimum features needed to connect and interract with
| an IRC server.

| Since I'm an IRC addict and I always liked to spend time learning new stuff
| on IRC, here is a review of several IRC clients for Linux. Some of them are
| well-known and popular, like XChat, Konversation or Irssi, and others are not
| so widely used or known, but nevertheless, they deserve mentioning.

| For many like me IRC is the main chat medium to share information about
| things we love. Be it linux, Ubuntu, games, whatever; there are always
| channels with many like minded people to talk to. There are a huge number of
| IRC clients out there, listing them all for me would be an impossible task.
| However, I could list 10 IRC clients I have used over the years, which are
| also quite popular among IRC/Linux community.


Free/Open-source IRC/IM Software

,----[ Quote ]
| Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet chat or synchronous 
| conferencing. It is mainly designed for group (many-to-many) communication in 
| discussion forums called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication 
| via private message and data transfers via Direct Client-to-Client. 
| Meanwhile, Instant Messaging (IM) is a form of real-time communication 
| between two or more people based on typed text. The text is conveyed via  
| computers connected over a network such as the Internet.
