    Wither it works or not. I'll probably not use it, but my bigger problem is that I have no one to talk to... :(

    If you have to market your software as "X Killer" then it just tells us that your software isn't good enough to stand on it's own merits.

    Not to mention this is so new you're supposed to just blindly trust this guy that it works. Lets see some public source code and audits done to ensure he's not just hyping.

    With that said, Skype is pure garbage and I'm not defending it. I wouldn't dream of using the software outside of a sandboxed VM.

    Good luck with that Kim!
  6. If you really want a Skype killer check out Tox.

    I'm starting to realise that this boy is not the chump a lot of us mistook him to be, he has a way with the media like no other.

    Don't be so modest. What you mean to say is that this site was assigned to you. (y);)
