    there is no mirc for linux.

    use x-chat instead or any of the many alternative solutions (quassel and such).

    mIRC is an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client for Windows. Why don't you try a native Linux alternative?

    See: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InternetRelayChat

    If you really want to install mIRC you can use wine:

    I believe that XCHAT irc support was dropped 2 years ago.

    I'd like to know what is the IRC client that replaces xchat in the fondness of regular ubuntu IRC chat users?

    Years ago I used IRC ("mirc") to get previews of new classical music releases. Is that still possible?

    XChat is still alive and kicking although it has been a while between releases. Another solid choice is irssi and this soon to be defunct guide should provide a start:

    Mind you there is a perfectly acceptable web based client that can easily be used to join #ubuntuforums on Freenode:

    Lots of choices!
    You think that's air you're breathing now?
