i haven't decided which one to use yet for the current project i'm working 
on, but here are some options for ya:

    * Apache MQ (closest to what MSMQ does) - java, seems to be fairly 
mature and in use
    * AMQP standard based -
        * OpenAMQ - java, fairly new, incomplete
        * RabbitMQ - erlang (!), fairly new but seems already pretty 
    * ICE (icecast) - ( c++, ice itself is 'corba done right 
(according to them), they've got a message queue app built on top of it

please not ehtat although there are others like STOMP, we have a requirement 
for high performance so haven't looked at any of the simpler stuff.

i'd be very much interested i hearing what others have used and what their 
actual experience has been, whether with one of the above or something else.
