skype

skype's debian apt repository seems to have gone kaput! .deb intall packages give errors, due to missing dependencies. also noticed that the 64bit .deb wanted many 32bit dependencies. skype need to get their act together. losing confidence... only reason to use this is my friends using this. chicken-and-egg? you bet!

and the shambles started after microsoft took over skype. i can remember a time when skype client was lean clean & efficient. now it is humungous bloatware spyware crapware

slashdot says Microsoft Won't Say If Skype Is Secure Or Not. Time To Change?
as usual, the comments provide more insight.

i recommend voip to my friends. talking becomes enjoyable again.

personally i await the dawn of federated voip
