Secure Enterprise-grade Persistent Group Chat

Also from Todd Bishop... Microsoft buys MindAlign...

MindAlign is a secure enterprise-grade persistent group chat solution.
Oh, dear. Is there any reason a large organization would not want to base its future messaging capabilities on XMPP?

But I had similar thoughts about email, and yet there's Exchange. One difference may be, though, with email and Exchange, Microsoft got in before email could become much of a platform for messaging applications. I would imagine over the last 10 years there's been little venture money for email-based platforms.

The same is probably not true for "instant messaging". What do you think? Am I just being ignorant in my recollection and/or prognostications?
