Think I'll stick to skype.

But if BT/Yahoo can get the video working nicely with it next year like they say, then will switch + it will hopefully be better than msn's port setup nightmare for webcam chats.

I recentlt took part in a trial for [vizzitme.com...] which is also a webcam / phone type service created by BT. It was actually really good but at the subscription prices they were talking i think it was more aimed at business users.

Isn't Skype semi Spyware?

I think in their Terms & Conditions they say that they have the right to install any software on your computer at a later date. Most probably sucking everyone in and then sticking them with spyware in the future.

I think I saw this on the negative reviews page on download.com
