"Net Talk, the animated Internet conferencing service, has launched a Linux client for its free-to-use service."
"Steve Tover, the firm's president, said that this is the first time that Linux users have access to an animated online conferencing service, let alone a service with high-quality Internet telephony communications available."
"Tover said that the development allows people with Red Hat Linux to take advantage of the benefits of Net Talk's unique Voice over IP (Internet Protocol) technology, in order to better communicate over the Internet."
"The Java client, which can be downloaded in under a minute across most Internet connections, allows groups of Internet users on different computer platforms to speak to each other from the Net Talk community Web site, as well as from Web sites using the Net Talk software."
