Skype 2 and Video

I'm a big fan of Skype. It just works. And its simple enough for my dad - a retired fisherman - to use without major trauma. And now the Beta 2 does video. (some folks think its evil as it doesnt support open standards. Well, when open standards catch up to Skypes level, I'll go along with that.

And the other reason I like Skype ? Its another MS product I dont have to use. (Dont get me wrong - I dont actually hate MS. Its just that MS is shorthand for buggy, unreliable, badly implemented, badly supported and overpriced)

However, as UserFriendly.Org discusses, simple videoconferencing does raise some issues.. Read this one and the next three to see what I mean...
