    If you just want internet voice chat, Skype is cheaper (100% cheaper, in fact) and much more well known. Not having a copy of Groove I can't do a feature comparison, but you can easily download Skype, and that might make your Instructable fuller and more useful. Why do I need Groove when I have Skype- what does it do that Skype doesn't?

    No, I do not work for Skype, despite using the word five times in that paragraph

    On Skype you can't collaborate on files and stuff (I will make an Instructable about this later)
