Here's my brief and informal comparison:

Jabber XCP costs 2.5k per year per developer and 1k per developer for  
up to 10 more [1]. Jabber XCP 5.0 starts at 35 per user per year [2].  
Assuming 10 pizza boxes in a rack, load balancing according to  
Zbyszek [3] and a target of 500k users, your first year Jabber XCP  
costs are thus:

Developer licenses: $12,500
Hardware: $100,000
Jabber XCP: $17,500,000

"There are some things money can't buy, for everything else there's
