If you work with people online, I’ve not found anything that touches the recent versions of Skype.

Skype has gotten so good that I almost feel like they should change its name because a lot of people have come to remember Skype as being that thing for doing crappy video and audio calling. 

Over the past year it has become, imo, the best chat program (text, voice, video, whatever) out there.

Good but I don't chat online... used to yahoo but not now.

so you can use it to talk to more then one person if your already in a chat with one and all 3 or more can chat at the same time with each other or is it like MSN Messenger and you can only chat with one hands free and the other one you have to hold down the mic button to chat with them ?? and how many can you have in a video chat at a time?

Skype simply rules! But an option to create/use custom emotes would make it even better

Chat program?  I suppose so.  I have worked with it more as a cheap VoIP, and it does pretty good.  For the price, you cant beat it.

Yep, it's the best one out there, IMO. 

Obviously you can text with it, and the fact that it stores the conversations while you are gone is awesome.

I have not encountered a limit to the file size you can send over it.

You can call any other Skype user anywhere in the world...free!....The sound quality is better than any other messenger out there ...no noise, no cutting out...it sounds like the person you are talking to is in the room with you.

Skype is the reason I no longer have a land line telephone

Skype is SO awesome.

I just started using it for work since I work remotely.  Free calls to most 800/888 numbers is huge, since 70% of my phonecalls are conference calls.

You work for them, right? THAT's why you made me install it! Yes it's good. Yes it makes file sharing easier. But you tricked me!

I suppose you're going to play innocent about this stupid thing you told me to buy.

I still don't understand why it won't do anything. It just lays there. And looks at me.
