I use it...I like it...no catches.

It works best broadband to broadband but even works well wth my dialup to someone with broadband. And even works okay dialup to dial up

Skype's great. I use it to talk to my parents. They can't call me, unless I have the program running. :D

I used it too. Kinda like it. It even has an ICQ-like messenger thingy

BTW, is it normal for Skype to mute the your caller when you are speaking, or is this an option I can turn off somewhere?

It's normal, but if the connection is real good and fast the delay is hardly noticable

Errr, thanks.... but I didn't mean the delay, I mean I can't hear what the other person is saying when I'm speaking.

Yeah..that happens sometimes. But it didn't happen when I was using a cable modem with a 100MB connection. It seems to need a fat pipe to run at full duplex
