I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

hi, what is your purpose of that comparison?
most of them are quite static unless you want to pay (like Office Communicator/Lync)

we can even try to find a gartner-version of this to say which one on the leader board...
Softros LAN messenger e.g,  this app got  last update  March, 23 2015.

What's the point of "regular updates"? I'd want fewer updates if the function worked as desired.
