    That's easy: because most of the times it's the audio driver that fails. And why don't they fix the drivers? And why is the world so cruel? And ... so on!

      Don't make me out to be the bad guy. As a buyer, if the seller commits FRAUD, I expect a refund and will do whatever it takes to get it.

        Something wrong with SIP?
        If you can skype, you can SIP.

        I got a family member who's offshore for a year and Skype is the only way to get in contact. But... Skype sucks under any OS and especially under Linux today up to the point that only text communication is possible but I can do that with MSN protocol clients anyway. That sucks.

        I know it's:
        a) Evil;
        b) Proprietary;
        c) Closed standard and;
        d) Not GPL'ed....

        But at least I can now make some freaking video calls in the near future

        Thank you Skype for this crappy half-baked desicion xD

          Yes: my entire family and friends group isn't going to change their learned app for something else just because I demand it... Yes: it's the classic bang-your-own-head-hard-against-the-wall problem, but at the same time anti-social from my part: the entire world does something one way (Windows + Skype) and I have to ignore everyone by doing it my (as usual better) different way.

            Yeah, what he said. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before something better and probably open source takes it's place, and people will switch to that. Most people switched to Firefox didn't they? The voip ap of the future could be some free software project we have now, or something completely different. Who knows.

            For now though, Vincent said it.

                I didn't believe that, but you're right.

                Incredible. No wonder the security software industry is booming.

                  Ok, fair enough. Without getting into an argument about actual users/large scale deployments.

                  Though we can probably safely assume that anybody using a Voip program in the first place is at least a -bit- computer literate, and willing to try something new.

                    For the technicalphabetic people an unknowm piece of 'tech' is 'new' and a new program just a different way of expierencing 'old tech' and are therefore unwilling to learn.

                    It's sad as hell... in the 21st century one would expect people to know how to operate GUI desktop computers now that we al depend on them, but no...

                    People need a drivers license to learn about computers. The EU demands it, but did it the, *sigh*, 'Microsoft products equals computers' and you learn nothing else than where to click on the screen... *double sigh*.
