Skype


I just found this:

www.skype.com

They even have Linux versions available! (although no source code) Has anyone given this a try yet? I downloaded the dynamic binary on my Gentoo system and it seems to work alright.

It works well. Sadly, this app is greedy and consumes a lot of CPU percentage.
And it's not open source.
I found teamspeak more flexible, but with a different way of use.
