Yahoo! Beta VoIP

Source Title:
Yahoo to offer free PC calling with new messenger
Story Text:

After giving Napster a sound spanking, Yahoo! are now gunning for Skype with a new VoIP beta service. It appears only to be computer to computer, and does not offer the facility of calling landlines that Skype offers. There would not appear to be enough in the service to get me to switch from Skype.

Yahoo said it was enhancing its voice telephony service "to allow consumers to far more easily call anywhere in the world for free through high-quality, PC-to-PC calling."

Wonder if Skype and Yahoo can call each other, or does one need to install both systems?

Probably not

Most providers seem to make a point of being as incompatible with other systems as they conceivably can - guess why? :-)
