Re: Skype is nothing but hype...
It's possible to get better results with msn than skype.
On a slower pc( skype needs relatively more powerful cpus for codec and echo cancellation processing) without being firewalled (note the poster said "direct connection"), you could get better quality from msn. This is not speculation, rather from my own experience.
experience with corporate sites' connection is not typical, as they are usuallly firewalled and msn's nat traversal largely depends on upnp capability of your router-- i dont know many corporate sites would allow that..
