XYZ has invited you to try Google Talk

I've been using Google Talk and thought you might like to try it out. We can use it to call each other for free over the internet. Here's an invitation to download Google Talk. Give it a try!

Update: in all fairness I should point out that the download page does at least explictly address the woes of heterogenic operating system users: Mac and Linux users can connect to Google Talk using other IM clients
