3 Responses to Skype for Linux 2.1 Beta: Finally SILK Call Quality Across All Skype-to-Skype Calls

    Skype 2.1.0.xx for linux works VERY WELL on Jaunty Jackalope and Karmic Koala. It would crash (just shut down) half the time upon logon when I ran it in Intrepid Ibex.

    I am able to view others' screens just fine through the screen share function, although I am unable to share my screen… something that I WOULD LOVE TO SEE soon.

    The GUI's a little less than acceptable when compared to the Windows 4.1.0.xxx versions. I have had a problem sharing the screen on 4.1.0. through windows 7 as a guest on VirtualBox. And the audio is a little fragmented, but I think the distortion only occurs while a system update is active (which is 65% of the time on Windows).
