LAN chat b/w ubuntu and windows

view story

http://askubuntu.com – Two users on the LAN running empathy can see each other under 'People Nearby' (telepathy-salut implementing link-local XMPP protocol). Is there a chat program in Windows that can see ubuntu users on a LAN running empathy only? I would really not like to set up a Jabber LAN server. (HowTos)
