Just wondering if anyone can give an idea when we might start seeing the Windows features like the ability to chat with Facebook contacts on the Linux version of Skype? We're stuck so far behind and I hate having to boot into my Windows partition.
The only problems I have actually RUNNING Skype in Linux are the 11.04 or better Ubuntus. Other than that, it runs just fine. I would PREFER that some of the "Windows features" would actually disappear from Windows! For Facebook and Twitter and such there are DOZENS of other utilities in Linux!
Indee....EVERY MAJOR, ( and most minor), Linux distro has at least ONE "social networking multi-client" such as gwibber.
On some of them, not ONLY can you access FB, but several IRC channels AND SKYPE!
Click up your "package manager", set some new repositories and let fly...
There's MUCH more to Linux than Open Office and ZSNES...
Which has, indeed, been my gripe all along...I have a Facebook account. It works no matter what browser OR OpSys I use. I have a MySpace account. LiveJournal, too. Several blogs on serveral services. ALL of them...you guessed it....work just fine. What need is there for FB,(or anything ELSE, for that matter...), to interface by way of Skype?
For the paid subscriber, the ongoing HASSELS aren't worth the MOMENT'S convenience...
If I could load the Linux version into Windows, I would DO IT in a HEARTBEAT! The Linux version is NOT ""far behind". It's back there at a level where EVERYTHING worked, ALL the time. Wehn the Linux version comes out of beta 2.2 WITH all of the "bells and whistles", (as well as all the problems that the Win version has!), I will NOT update it!
