Speaking too quickly: how about FREE calls?

So I was enthusiastic a bit too quickly regarding the introduction of free calls to 0800/+1-800-numbers with Skype yesterday. There's a competitor on the block: I have no idea how they can offer it, but the VoIPBuster service offers FREE calls to any landline (!) in these countries (most of which Skype charges 0.017 Euro per minute for: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States...

Their GUI, icons etc are clearly ripped from Skype (see shots below) but hey; free calls...

"we have limited our Free-Calls policy to 1 minute per call. If you want to enjoy UNLIMITED free calls, just register and buy 1 euro worth of credit."
