I'm an iChat person, so I would love to see VoIP (computer to phone) added in Leopard. I have always found Skype to be a little buggy.

I used Skype in Saskatchewan last summer, and it worked well. But back here, it doesn't connect. I've heard that ATT and others have buggered their dsl modems so you can't use VOIP. Anyone know anything about that?

If they have done that, does anyone know if there's a generic dsl modem out there that will work with both ATT global and Skype?

I've been using voice via Skype for a few months to converse with family members abroad, and so far I'm quite impressed. Rarely do I have trouble with it, and the audio quality is decent. The only problems I've had are related to my bluetooth headset, not Skype itself.
