program that allows you to make free telephone calls over the Internet with other Skype users, regardless of their location in the world. This program operates using peer-to-peer networking and in a similar fashion to many instant messengers, allows you to see if your contacts are online or otherwise unavailable.

Yes it works you can use the head set or buy a router (ebay, just type in skype) which lets you use your cordless house phone so your not stuck infront of your computer.

I use http://www.voipbuster.com/en/faq.html as it only requires a 5 euro deposit for 6 months use. You can make free calls to others on the same software but more importantly you can phone any landline in the UK (geographical numbers only) completely free. The only slight drawback with it is that you use your headset rather than the telephone but it works very well. The free trial only allows calls of 60 seconds but it gives you an idea of whether it would be of any use to you. Great for people that make a lot of daytime calls.

i dont see mutch point, when everyone you know with a pc is probably one of your contacts in one of the instant messengers, all of whitch you can talk through with good quality.
