Anyone used VoIP service Skype?

Skype (click here) advertises itself as much better than other VoIP services & other instant messengers (AIM, Yahoo, ICQ). Has anyone else used it? Any downsides to it?

Not actually used it but apparently the sound qualtiy is excellent even on dialup.

Can't see the point. Messenger is usually bundled on all new computers, the sound is excellent and you can send live footage of your mug.
