I'm using Ekiga under Ubuntu. And it seems to work
well. But my experience with Linux software ported to
Windows is not so good. Yes, they have the
functionality but it means putting the user under
stress. And as my friends are unable (in most cases)
to install anything because of lack of knowledge or
lack of access this isn't an option sadly.

What are the decent/used SIP software applications in
Windows? My experience is quite limited. And from what
I asked around me the general experience is more like
start Yahoo Messenger and start the voice/video part.
Or start Skype and start talking. Nothing protocol
related. And Gaim can't do anything but text.

Also, SIP does video as well? I don't have a webcam
but I would like to see those who do.

Ok. So the final problem is which application?

Yes, it brings a great deal of light in here. So far I
have been asking around some forums and in three weeks
- no answer. Thank you Snark!
