Ill have to relook into it :cool2: I've used google-talk, and with a 99% success rate. the voice quality is excellent, and it also has a very samll footprint ( lite). The only problem with it is, you cant send files

I do have skype, but no google-talk, since I couldn't find a Linux version of it...

I don't use skype anymore, because it isn't very common used in my direct surrounding.

To be honest, when one only has 56k dial up skype and Google Talk are both so damn slow
