What is Gobby?
Gobby is a free collaborative editor supporting multiple documents in one session and a multi-user chat. It runs on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other Unix-like platforms.

It uses GTK+ 2.6 as its windowing toolkit and thus integrates nicely into the GNOME desktop environment.

Check out the Gobby's list of features, take a look around in our screenshots section and download it right now.

Features
    * Realtime Collaboration through encrypted channels (version 0.4.0 and up)
    * Each user has its own changeable colour to be identified by others
    * IRC-like chat for communicating with your partners while coding
    * Syntax highlighting for most programming languages
    * Session password protection
    * Multiple documents in one session
    * Drag'n'drop of documents into Gobby
    * Document synchronisation on request
    * Zeroconf support
    * Unicode support
    * Cross-platform: runs on Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS X (albeit not natively) and other flavours of UN*X
    * Gobby is free software and licenced under the GPL 2

Just installed it under linux, seems to work fine, good syntax highlighting etc,...  though I didn't test the actual collaborative part of it, since there was noone around to try it out with :)
