I'm not long after getting off an 80 minute phone call to someone I talk to online in a different country, yet is in a neighbouring county (you'd think this would be the first thing we'd look at when working on cross border relations.. but we've gay telecom operators). Tis gonna cost me a fucking bomb when the bill comes, would've well been cheaper to get a return bus even though we get shitty fares, and us mere secondary students get the worst altogether. Rant over. The internet saves right? Who uses much VOIP software, which is what I want right? I need something cross platform (I use GNU/Linux, everybody else uses Windows), preferably free. Also tell me about SIP, it's in free software such as GNOME Ekiga, and I dunno what it's about. I'd like something also where it's possible to have more than two people in a chat. And I'd like more suggestions to simply Skype, if at all possible. Tell me, anyone ever use OpenWengo? Should be simple to setup too, because everybody's a noob including me these days. Hell, how's MSN's voice support? Do any GNU/Linux programs work well with it?
