    Is there any way to use Google Talk's voice chat feature on a Mac apart from using Windows?

    What other free PC to PC voice chat programs are there for a Mac that run properly? I want to talk with people with Windows.

    No need to buy an antivirus.
    Unless you're running Windows via Bootcamp / Vmware / Paralels in which case you should get an anti virus app for Windows.

    Don't worry about Mac OS X though :) Just be sure not to enter your admin password when you're not expecting to.

    They make anti-virus software for Mac???? :)

    I've been using Macs for about 2 or 3 years now. Haven't bought any of that A-V nonsense, haven't had any virus issues. There is the occasional OS glitch (AirPort sometimes has a mind of its own on the MBP), but viruses won't be a problem.
