I guess it doesn't even matter if there is, the sound was too low and the mic wouldn't pick up. I've read all the posts I could find on google about Dell 1535, but none helped. It had other issues too. But Skype not working was a deal-breaker. Taking her back to XPPSP3 I guess - she's non-technical as far as PCs go, but she hates vista.
Maybe I'll install Windows Mojave and see what she thinks of that.
theres ekiga and theres also a kde application for phoning.
ekiga can do vido.
Skype does video, but not video conferencing. It does do audio conferencing, though.

Advice: Never pick a Monday to create a custom RPM package of QT-4.
openoffice has a plugin registry like firefox... here are some plugins I found usefull:
(storing ooofice documents in SVN)

SCO did try to sue an awful lot of people over, essentially, nothing. They claimed ownership of Unix or somesuch nonsense, and sued (in particular) Novell over copyright infringements or somesuch nonsense. In the end, it blew up in their face. It was shown that IBM actually owned the property in question, so IBM decided to sue them (ostensibly because SCO was being an asshole).
Since then, it's just been a bunch of bullshit with them.
I forgot why they went after Autozone. Probably because they were using some Unix-related technology they felt they owned, or because they were using Linux systems for something and decided to turn them into an object lesson (one that blew up in their face).
SCO cannot die soon enough.
They became quite a pariah in the industry. Not surprisingly, most observers came to the conclusion (based on investments and collaborations etc) that Microsoft funded and arranged the whole thing, using SCO as a proxy to attack Linux.
Basically if you can raise the license cost above $0, it's game over for open source. They haven't been able to do it yet.
hm, realy? i've missed caldera being bought...
from the core sco there is (was) tarantella left, who did some sort of export desktops via web-browsers...
