    I don't know how many people had previously used this client, but it was a nice client and excellent free alternative to the crap out there (read: mIRC)

    Anyhow, it appears the project was sold
    and the guy who now owns it is a self confessed Open Source Zealot, which is a good thing in it's own right, but to add to that, Bersirc is now in the process of being ported to Linux and Mac OS X! \o/

    One to keep an eye on, rival to HydraIRC I think ;) screenshots and more info: http://bersirc.free2code.net/

    Nice! People have lots of truly free alternatives now. X-Chat, Hydra, and now this. :)

    I tried Besirc a while back and except for some visual gui glitches it was alright, but the visual glitches (like the menu disappearing) drove me back to mIRC Acidmax, since then I have become addicted to X-Chat :D

    Hopefully as it's going open source, glitches will be rectified quicker. :)
