Google Talk doesn't have Chat rooms, nor the ability to make a conversations with multiple contacts at the same time, a.k.a conference chat/call. That's why Perry's Conference Bot is really useful. The conference bot works runs as a normal google talk user that relays everything said to it to everyone on its contact list. It supports some simple commands (like )names), and has a basic admin interface to deal with abusers. The bot is written in python, and is tested under Linux, although apparently it works fine under Windows too.
