Probably Jabberd14 is the most widely deployed open source Jabber server for
*public servers* because it is the oldest and included in most distributions.
Jabberd2 is the next version of Jabberd14, but because there is not yet a
stable version after 2/3? years, Jabberd14 still "lives". ejabberd is only
2,5 years old, but already much better than Jabberd14 IMO. I think it also
has a better feature as it is build upon Erlang, as it is one of the
state-horses of the Erlang community, as it has a good community,... Jabberd2
and ejabberd is probably (wild guess) installed on the same number of server
(or has the same number of users using such a Jabber server). Jive Messenger
is IMO the Jabber server with (at the moment ) the most user-friendly web

That depends on what you needs. A good starting point is
http://www.jabber.org/admin/jsc/ (this do only list the open source Jabber
server implementations, and not yet all of them)
