MSN Messenger voice chat

Hi, I know lot of people has been asking the same questions, but no one has given a good solution.

Anyway, i have tried all im, i could find for linux, amsn, gaim, licq, everybuddy etc. but none of them is able to let me make a voicecall to my MSN freinds. The only one been able to get me touch is gnomemeeting, but thats not as good as MSN. Is there a voice chat program you would recommend me.
If not MSN compatible then some thing else, that can be installed on both windows XP and linux. The main thing is that voice will work, the text chat always work, so thats not a problem.

Don't think there are any IM programs for Linux that support MSN voice/video chat. You can try to get MSN working in Wine

Lightbulb Voice chat in Linux

Saw your post, I have been using free world dialup ( together with an application by Xten. Xlite is a free sip phone that allows you to use a number of pc and telco providers. I use FWD as this provides pc to pc voice using sip technology. voice quality is excellent.

If you go to pulvers site follow the links for FWD (free world dialup) you will be able to install the preconfigured version of xten. this works for windows. not sure if it works for linux but there is definately a client available which I'm using however i did configure this manually.
