Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a great way to connect with openSUSE community members in real time chat and for support. IRC uses popular client software, such as Konversation, Kvirc, X-Chat or instant messenger clients that support the IRC protocol like Pidgin. All are included in openSUSE. Although chatting occurs in a group forum, you can also privately chat with online individuals.
