Hello. I would like to replace Skype with a free software alternative. I want VoIP that I can trust.
Tell me if I'm wrong, but Coccinella (and for that matter Ekiga, Twinkle, QuteCom, etc) is just a client and it is basically useless without a service provider, right? Well, where do I get a service provider?
The websites for Coccinella, Ekiga, Twinke and QuteCom all talk about technology, and clients, and throw acronyms like SIP and talk about RFC this, or protocol that, but none of these seem to describe how you can actually use the software to call your girlfriend or your boss.
I am a technical user, but in this instance I really don't want to learn about protocols or SIP that or the other. I just want to call up my boss, sketch ideas using the white-board feature, and just get on with my work, but I'd rather not be stuck with a proprietary secret product. Is there any hope for me?
