For Google Talk, you have to have a google account and all other recipients have to have a google acct.
Untrue, your recipients do not need to have a google account. The use of Transports on the Jabber protocol allow for you to have all services available to you in your Google Talk Buddy List (AIM, Yahoo, Jabber, ICQ, MSN, etc.)
Google Talk is great if you need to go the free route and I would say is tops in the free price range.
