As I have to do lots of phone calls with foreign countries (United Staates, United Kingdom, Danmark, Ireland, Netherlands...) I am excessively using my VoIP account at Sipgate, as it is much cheaper and as I love doing longer calls with my USB headset instead of having a "hardware phone" in the hand all time.
So I searched for a good VoIP softphone for Mac OS X as I am doing my work on the Mac mostly. I found X-Lite which I am already using on Windows and which is working fine (on Windows at least). Unfortunately the latest X-Lite version doesn't support Leopard yet, so I had to search s. th. different. I found SJphone which is Java based (at least I think it is). It works with Sipgate but it is very uncomfortable and doesn't support different audio outputs/inputs - so this doesn't work for me as well.
I finally found Xmeeting. Xmeeting works with Leopard and Sipgate w/o issues. The user interface is really clean and comfortable. It also supports video conferencing and has direct access on you local address book (if you allow it). It is highly configureable and works like a charm - much better than X-Lite on Windows. And the best... it's OSS so it is free
Here a quick screenshot of the clean and small UI:
