It was good while it lasted. Skype has been sold to Microsoft. I will start closing my account. Any good advice on the alternatives? My wish list is
- voice (multiparty nice, but not neccesary)
- video calling (multiparty irrelevant)
- multi-platform (Ubuntu and Windows needed, blackberry and Apple stuff nice to have)
Will keep you posted.
Update 1: So far: Google talk for chat, audio and video. Empathy chat client for Ubuntu to connect to it and a few other services (it can actually do Facebook, Yahoo and a small dozen other services). It SEEMS native google video (as opposed to through empathy) is a bit better.
