    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!

    Try Dialpad chameleon it is better for sound and maybe cheaper...tell me
    about it if you try it.

    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!
