I already had it crossed out for that reason.
I also found mentions of gizmo and wengophone.

If I understand correctly (I'm completely new to this), skype not only offers 
a non FOSS program that wants to use your machine as a kind of peer to peer 
relay (and what else?), it also provides a *service*.
To keep up with the rest of the group I will have to use this service but I 
don't know how easy (if possible) it is from another program.

Oh yes, I did.
Let me be more precise, our (translaters/correctors) group need a tool to 
discuss our work that allows us to be more than 2 or 3 on the line.

I'll read about Kphone, for some strange reason I like this name :-)

Thank you all.  
If worst comes to worst I guess I won't die from using a non FOSS program.


BOFH excuse #210: We didn't pay the Internet bill and it's been cut off.
