Skype 2.0 out. Has VIDEO support

Skype 2.0 is now officially out. Like always click the title and it'll take you to the product site.

Skype, for those of you that do not know, is a way of talking to your friends on the web. It was recently bought by eBay so I'm guessing this is the main reason for the big upgrade. Skype uses Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to allow you to talk with other Skype users for free.

Also, Skype has a service, that for a small charge, you can call "regular" phones and talk to them.

It is a pretty good service. I've tried it and liked it but I didn't really have a use for it. This is probably going to be the best service for video communication in the PC World (haha, Apple iChat AV owns all).
