Your observations are right on target.  He has some how twisted some arms to 
hod a yearly access conference via this thing and I guess it might be 
worthwhile for that, but if he really wants to do us a service, he'd look 
into skyp or something like that or as you say, speek freely is available 
and functional.

Huh? What is this and why would we care?

Maybe I'm the only fossil around here who hasn't a clue about it. Maybe
everyone else but me is sitting around their keyboards just pining for
the day some beneficent sould will take pitty on us and create a Linux
client for this service? Maybe? Maybe not.

OK. I'm net literate and can go to their web site where I see they run a
business that charges for what this community already does for free with
Speak Freely. Heck, a few of us have even been expirimenting with a
dialup strategy for voice chat. And, nobody is taking credit cards for
speaking freely either via the phone or the computer sound card.

So, let's just back up a minute here and drop the assumption. Please
explain the "so what" part of it, at least for my benefit, because I
don't get it.

Why do I want to join a bunch of Windows users who are paying good cash
to sit around and chat about Windows computers--or whatever they chat
about? Surely it's not to listen to ACB Radio. We already do that.
