    It needs vider on both sides? I think there are already solutions in ubuntu software center that allow free internet calls to any clients. Beat me if I'm wrong.

        Just like Skype Viber needs its client on both sides as it uses a custom proprietary protocol. If you're not OK with this use an open source alternative ( Ekiga ? )

          While its nice that we have popular apps coming to linux i am still amazed that we don't have a WebRTC based solution to use.

              Neat! It uses Qt 5.x
              At least for the desktop (win/lin/mac) it does.

                    Yes, the download page is removed. The download link still works, though.

                        Nice!

                        Thanks! Though, I think its weird that the download page is acting up. I hope they haven't permanently removed it. Here are the screenshots that they offered on their page: (This is clearly Ubuntu)

                          Third party upload/download page

                          Would it be wrong for one of us to make sure this zip file is uploaded elsewhere so that if the company did decide that they want to permanently remove the page, we can still access the file?

                            Seems nice! The only problem is that it does not want to accept accented characters in Greek, but otherwise it's convenient!
