Skype is a little piece of software that lets you make free calls to anyone else on Skype, anywhere in the world. And even though the calls are free, they are really excellent quality. If you and your friends, family or business contacts are using webcams, you can also make free video calls. You can even call landlines and mobile phones at really cheap per minute rates (and there’s no setup or subscription fee).

  1. Note that Skype for Linux currently does not support any cool Skype features such as video calls, Skype SMS nor and have poor support for Skype Voice-mail.

    Nice guide, by the way. :)
