Hmm.. cool :) I had no idea what codec they were using, but as it sounds
so good for voice, I assumed it was voice optimised (like ogg speex).
According to the website it uses up to 128 kbps if you have the bandwidth.
For those people who are shapening thier free-software knives :) you could
also use gnome-meeting, which lets you pick appropriate codecs, and is
free as in speech.
Skype scares me in the same way that mp3 should have scared me before I
knew fraunhofer was not my friend.
And its inaccessible on Linux. Another lock-out thing.
