Skype vs. Google Talk

Anyone use both and could comment on likes/dislikes of both?

I know that Skype gets a bunch of love around here, but curious if there are any other viable, quality VoIP alternatives out there.

I just tried out iChat with video today. Skype is superior in both sound and video quality to iChat. I have never tried Google Talk.

Personally, I prefer the hardware-based VOIP phones. No need to be tied to a computer. They have better quality than both Skype or Googletalk. And if you travel, you can actually plug many VOIP phones into any network and it'll work!
