Yes, I hate skype, but ekiga is just terrible and useless. I was able (without much effort) to have it working on my computer and a on a couple of friends' ones. But the voice quality is bad, and the video is painful worst. On the same network skype works just fine (unfortunately, because I hate it!)

This is most likely down to the Global IP Sound codec licensed by Skype, which is highly resistant to packet loss, delivering pretty good quality on a range of connections as well as being the same on all Skype clients. I also find it better than the expensive Nortel VoIP softphone client that I use for work - also SIP based, but the real issue is the codecs.
