-### InspIRCd
+### About
-InspIRCd is an IRC daemon written entirely from scratch, it is one of the
-few IRC daemons to be written in C++ and it was released under the GNU
-General Public License. InspIRCd is the second most used IRC daemon
-according to the ranking on SearchIRC.
+InspIRCd is a modular Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server written in C++ for Linux,
+BSD, Windows and Mac OS X systems which was created from scratch to be stable,
+modern and lightweight.
-The first stable release of InspIRCd was in 2002.
+As InspIRCd is one of the few IRC servers written from scratch, it avoids a
+number of design flaws and performance issues that plague other more established
+projects, such as UnrealIRCd, while providing the same level of feature parity.
+InspIRCd is one of only a few IRC servers to provide a tunable number of
+features through the use of an advanced but well documented module system. By
+keeping core functionality to a minimum we hope to increase the stability,
+security and speed of InspIRCd while also making it customisable to the needs of
+many different users.
