Dude! I thought you said you weren't going to say anything? You even swore on a MaximumPC mag! :wink:

I don't use Linux day to day. Bye the bye. Can anybody recommend a good IM client for Linux that will let me use a web cam?


I'm pretty sure Pidgin can do it. I haven't had a web cam in a while, so I can't say personally.

The court ordered me to never own a webcam again. :)


Pidgen does not support a web cam. I tried. I'm not sure I would class skype as an IM client. More importantly what I really need, and didn't specify, is Yahoo IM support. The overwheiming majority of the people I chat with use Yahoo accounts.

I realised he was an asshat when he claimed to know people who thought Windows ME was their best OS. No one claims ME as their favourite OS.

The arrogance that pervades that article is nauseating, though. I could barely stomach it. The fact that he ends his article with a suggestion to buy his book just makes it worse.





not to be obstinate...but back in 2001...my wife and I bought a 64 megabyte HP computer from Wal~Mart that came with their version of ME.
Still one of my favorite computers and OS's to this day.
Yeah ME was worrisome..but it pointed towards what would become Windows XP. It took windows 98, added better USB support, and itroduced the nifty System Restore feature.

Actually, Glenn ... Windows ME was the nail in the Win9x coffin. MS ditched that kernel completely after ME and switched to Windows 2K (which became XP for home use).

Anyway ... let's put this thread back in the grave where it belongs. ;)
