I quite understand. MS taking it over was a disaster :(

I was going to use Ekiga but it's dependency on qt and my small SSD
meant it was a no go. As another poster mentioned, I wasn't overly
impressed that you have to muck about with your router etc.

I think we have to wait for somebody to write a Skype clone and
hopefully MS taking over Skype will provide the impetus (MS will drop
the linux port as soon as they can).
