Interesting. Skype does work under Linux and it does use Audio. However
so do a lot of other applications that we don't generally discuss. The
fact that Skype doesn't support open standards is a problem.
Incidentally I am uninstalling it as I type because it just annoys me.
Can't say I'm really that bothered either way, although it has to be
said, I'm having trouble keeping up with this list these days due to the
sheer volume of traffic.
