I am thinking about installing Skype on my Apple machine (OS X Panther)
or Linux (Mandrake 10.1)

Does anyone have any experience with this VoIP app? I have friends
overseas and it sounds tempting, but when I googled it I noticed some
concerns from some administrators regarding the "secrecy" of its network
demands, and a foggy EULA.

Any tips would be appreciated!

Thanks Jeremy and MX,
just an FYI -Skype is free.

I haven't gotten any real specific negative input, so I gave it a shot
on my Mac. Works well, no complaints, just still a little nervous
about security, but .... so far so good!
