Skype for Windows

Skype is the next phenomenon from the people who brought you KaZaA. Just like KaZaA, Skype uses P2P (peer-to-peer) technology to connect you to other users – not to share files this time, but to talk and chat with your friends. The technology is extremely advanced – but super simple to use... You’ll be making free phone calls to your friends in no time!

- Free unlimited worldwide phone calls to other Skype users
- Superior sound quality – better than your regular phone
- Works with all firewall, NAT and routers – nothing to configure!
- Friends list shows you when your Skype friends are online and ready to talk or chat
- Super-simple and easy to use
- Your calls are encrypted “end-to-end” for superior privacy
- Based on cutting edge peer-to-peer technology developed by the creators of Kazaa and Joltid
- Contact grouping
- Skype video (webcam)

In order to use Skype for Windows software, your computer must meet the following minimum system requirements:
- PC running Windows 2000 or XP
- 400 MHz processor
- 128 MB RAM
- 15 MB free disk space on your hard drive
- Sound Card, speakers and microphone
- Internet Connection (either dial-up: minimum 33.6 Kbps modem, or any broadband: cable, DSL, etc.)
