11 irssi of course :-)
13 It seems that the most popular text mode irc-clients are
14 irssi, bitchx and epic/ircii. Both irssi and bitchx offer
15 more features than epic/ircii. Bitchx is two times larger
16 than irssi.
18 Of course the best approach would be customisable install CDs so that
19 we can have irssi and vi on the install CD and not annoy the users
20 with a different taste.
