oohhhh, :-\ I thought that it was only Desktop/Sever distributions
I'll vote for Ekiga/Gajim/Psi/Psi+ at the next time.
You noobs! you can use SIP clients as P2P-VoIP!
If your LAN IP is 192.168.1.3 than in order of someone else in the LAN network to call to you s/he needs to call to: sip:whatever_name_you_want
Same for WAN!
P2P-VoIP, the other side just need Ekiga or Linphone or other SIP client installed.
It is a decentralized VoIP!
Only 7 to Ekiga and 1 to Linphone, that's not good, at all.
At the SFLphone <http://sflphone.org/> (a new SIP/VoIP client for GNU/Linux) there's a blatant declaration of Peer to peer calls
LQ, please, VoIP and Text are not the same, thus there should be a double option, one for Text Messages and one for VoIP.
Gajim is so much more better than Pidgin (I want to share it with you, no flame-war lol)
Gajim, eventually, is Pidgin (PyGTK Toolkit) with only a Jabber/XMPP protocol resolver and all of the other resolvers (AIM, FaceBookChat, ICQ, Identi.ca, IRC, MSN, Twitter, YIM and many more) are installed within the server and they are called Getaway/Transport Agents
, so the server need to make updates to the needs to update its Libpurple
, which Adium
are using, very clever, eh?
When you are connected to ##slackware at irc.freenode.org > FreeNode sees the IP of the IRC-Transport > the IRC-Transport sees the IP of the server that your Jabber/XMPP account is installed at > and that server is the only one that can see your IP.
Gajim/Psi are the Jabber/XMPP clients that made FaceBookChat (only chat + SSL enabled!) and Twitter (fully working, only text) available when those two websites blocked between January 26th to 27th of this year 2011

Long live Jabber/XMPP.
Long live LQ.
