    This is one of the greatest freebees in the last few years! Awsome software on my peecee & was a reason I was recommending them over Macs - no more!

    You recommended people buy a PC over a Mac because of Skype? :-

    Don't get me wrong, I use Skype on my Wintel box and I think it's one of the better VoIP apps, but I would never go so far as to recommend someone buy a PC instead of a Mac because of it. Come on. It's not that good. :-)

    Skype rhymes with Hype

    And RIPE! What happened to that RIPE guy? Not that I miss him…
    Since day one with my 17" Powerbook I've been using iChat with this AND video if I want, same quality, even more people to find to yak with. Notice the standard lack of clarity in the pitch that the callee has to be a Skype registered user, so nothing new except conferencing, it won't be long before they all do that, not surprised it was the biggest thing since sliced bread on a PC, soon we'll all be using open source universal clients to all the services. Yawn…

    hype indeed!

    Isn't this the same company who packs spyware with kazaa for unsuspecting Windows users? My neighbor installed it and had popups all over his screen, even when he didn't think he was on the internet. God only knows what else the software was doing in his computer or who it was reporting to.

    I don't think we need this kind of 'free' software in the Mac world.
