I am using prosody since > 2yrs.

* It works very stable, 
* is written in Lua (good for embedded systems and probably the language
of choice for another handful of things too).
* even if it might lack needed features we need, the developer is very
approachable and the community there in general *very* helpful
(exceptional even for FLOSS standards imho)
* e.g. buddycloud [1] floss based federated social web works with it
preferred (tho they support ejabberd as well)
* it comes with a debian repo from the developer
* prosody has numerous very stable core modules plus alot of
testing/beta modules which in general are very stable as well

just my 5 cents.
