Free Roaming Calls through the Net

Have you heard about Skype. This FREE p2p (peer-to-peer) phone program is from the same guys who brought us KaZaA. This simple to use program allows you to make free calls to other Skype users around the world. Haven't tried it myself yet. I am downloading it right now. At last count this program has been downloaded 9,857,643 times.
It is reported to have excellent sound quality and highly secure with end-to-end encryption. You also do not need to reconfigure your firewall or router.
They are also introducing a new service called PocketSkype where people can use their handhelds and other Wi-Fi enabled mobile devices to make calls through wireless "hot spots" in homes, airports, hotels and your local Starbucks.
However, one drawback is that it is designed only for devices running the Microsoft's PocketPC operating system.
