vonage's softphone vs other soft phones

i'm wondering why i shouldn't be able to hook the vonage adaptor up to my modem and use any softphone out there (i used callsoft & callclerk prior to subscribing to vonage this morning). i haven't received my linksys adaptor yet, and am anxious to see if it works, since they don't say a thing about using softphones on vonage.com.

i just want speakerphone. and unless i get speakerphone POTS hardware, vonage doesn't indicate whether you can get speakerphone service with their product.

anybody else out there that has tried this, or some other configuration? i refuse to pay them 9.95 a month just to use a softphone. isn't it the irony of it all, getting telephony over IP, and having to scramble for some software to use it.
