I have been getting comments that one of the negatives of switching to Ubuntu is that the Linux version of Skype is bad. Yes indeed, it´s bad. No SMS, no video, no other features. But help is on the way.. As for the other criticisms that you can´t have Picasa, Google Earth and other apps in Ubuntu I fixed all that with Automatix yesterday. It works great!
