    xchat has a Windows build.
    When writing a specialization, be careful about its location; or to make it compile will be such a trial as to kindle its self-immolation.

    I'm using mIRC and it works alright...Although it is the only IRC client I've ever used...

    I would say mIRC too for Windows.

    For unix I use irssi, but it's a command line client so it's all a matter of taste.

    xchat for windows or ssh into a linux box and use irssi

    That said, I did use one windows client that looked promising a while ago. Haven't checked it in a while, but you might want to look at HydraIRC.
