Mostly a hobbyist, coding in C#/.NET, PHP with a bit of front-end web design (HTML, CSS, JavaScript).

I'm here to help if I can, and learn as much as I can.

Fascinating. Interesting to know that the ip command might be more useful as a Linux admin/developer going forward into the IPv6 world. Thanks for the in-depth response.

After some frustration, I have now learnt that video chat is not supported on Windows using Pidgin (which I only found out by joining their IRC channel). From the topic: "We only support voice/video (VV) on XMPP (not yet Windows)"

I was under the impression that pidgin didn't support video chatting. Do I need a specific plugin to support the Google Video chat? Do you have any more information on this? I'd prefer a solution that wasn't dependent on the web browser.

@Hello71: There are a few key issues (amongst many small ones): 1. Skype likes to predict what compression/framerate/transfer-rate to use, often having strange issues with lengthy calls making them choppy and laggy. Only restarting Skype (for both call members) seems to fix this; 2. At times, the Skype servers seem to be overloaded and calls can drop and can be unreliable (temporarily moving to another platform such as MSN, or waiting a few minutes being the fix); 3. Far too much surrounding (for lack of a better term) "bloat"; And I'd continue, but I ran out of characters.
