I don’t want to be anonymous. I just couldn’t type my name anywhere. Previous comment submitted by Philip Paeps.
sorry, the possibility to leave your contact info is now enabled.
Nice, but I still think people should avoid Skype at all cost.
Skype is evil. People shouldn’t rely on closed/proprietary protocols, especially not when there are well defined standards for VoIP communication available. Take SIP or IAX for example.
FWD offers these services to everyone for free
and it doesn’t matter what software or hardware you’re using.
You can get a SIP ATA for less than 40 euros or a full fledged
SIP DECT system for less than 100 euros. (These solutions include
support for the analog telephone line as well).
