This is a bit of a godsend

Jerry Farley's picture

This is a bit of a godsend for me right now. I've just been looking into video calling and hadn't realized skype on linux could do this. I haven't tried video calling before though on any level so i'm unsure what to expect. What's the quality of the call like; both visual and audio? Are there other alternatives also worth considering or is skype my best option?
