 Description of Skype Internet Telephone

On my Mac Skype sounds better than iChat. I played with it the other day and called several normal phone numbers with mixed results (they had trouble understanding me), which I think has more to do with the microphone I am using and my background noise than the software. Skype runs on Linux, Mac OS X, and windows and its pretty cool. One of my friends likes Gizmo better, but I don't have an opinion yet. I am going to buy a better headset and give them both another try.

"Skype lets you make free calls over the internet to anyone else who also has the service. It's free and easy to download and use, and it works with most computers. Skype offers free global telephony and unlimited voice calls with its next-generation peer-to-peer software."
