I started to use the SUSE Linux (SLED 10) in my laptop after removing Windows XP. I have the confident to use the Linux as much as familiar with Windows but I feel, and have more inconvenient to use the old version of skype, gtalk, & firefox in linux. Why these all companies are late to release the products when they release to Windows? How I can resolve this problem? May I know , what percentage of Linux users in desktop when Compare with Windows?
Many thanks in advance,
Thanks friends. Yes, I checked on the web and got it, Firefox 3.0.4 latest release. Similarly, very important to have Skype on the Linux with latest release. I tried to install through CrossOver. it didn't help me. How can I use the Skype on Linux box?
Finally, I could install the Skype, linux version which is very old. I tried to install using crossover the Windows version and that is also freezing when I open. I found, Skype is always working for Windows environment. Your suggestions, dear friends.....
Skype has a download on their site for Linux. In my experience, however, the Linux version is not as full featured as the Windows version and somewhat buggey. I have had Skype on PCLinuxOS 2007 for sometime and recently had it working on Mpeis.
A Goolge search for "Skype installation on Linux" may yield the answers you need. Skype also has free e-mail support and forums for help.
