Id thought id give Skype a try as my sister is taking a semester abroad in France, and talking on the phone can be pretty pricey. So i installed Skype, wich took about 2 seconds, signed up, pluged in my headset and WOW!!!!!!! I can hear her like she is in the next freaking room. It is crystal clear, 5 times better than a telephone. I am guessing it is probably uploading some terrible trojan in my PC every time i log on, but what the hell. We were both on high speed connections, so i guess that if you were on a 56k it wouldnt be as good, but i could hear her typing on her keyboard. Im very impressed, not only does this program work, but it just saved me like 11 dollars on my phone bill.
