    I've used it before. I might use it regularly if I knew people on it.

    The Ecru team use it, and some of our friends too. It's a great free way to talk. The only downside is the slight time delay so your conversations tend to be a bit one person talking, the other person talking, and if someone interupts then the flow of conversation falters. We all use headphone/microphone headsets from PC World that cost 9.99

    I've used skype many times in the past, but need to get a new microphone to get it working again. Used to use it mainly for talking to friends in Europe for free, but everyone I know is in the country again and I just use my cell for everything.

    I use it often. I think it is good, but it is not easy to configure. Most of the configuration settings are hidden in its config.xml file. By default, AGC (automatic gain control) is enabled, which messes with the volume of your microphone. The only way to turn this off is to edit the config.xml file in your Skype profile folder.
