Go ahead, Skype me

You know you want to...

My ID on the voice-over-Internet-protocol (voice-over-IP or VOIP) service Skype is banazir. Skype provides free Internet telephony (computer-to-computer) and very cheap calls from a computer to a conventional phone. The global SkypeOut rate is 0.017€, i.e., 1.7 Euro cents, per minute.

Indeed
Any VOIP that works on both is impressive in my book.
Note that it also works on MacOS and PocketPC (think of the possibilities there! free cell phone, or "GSM mobile", or "da ge da" if you prefer)...

Yes, free computer-to-computer calls
Whoa...free computer-to-computer calls?
Yes.

What kind of system requirements?
See for yourself here.
400MHz PC, 128Mb RAM, 15Mb HD space on Windows / 10Mb on Linux, 10Mb on MacOS X, microphone and sound card, 33.6 dialup connection or better.

For a PocketPC you need Windows Mobile 2003 (WinCE 4.2 Ozone) or better, a 400MHz processor, and 802.11 WiFi.

And how easy was it to sign up?
Very.
