    I've had my fair share of problems with skype but I put up with it since I use it everyday for both voice and text communication (I don't do video though). If I'm hosting a call of 8 or more people, some people cannot join the call for no reason whatsoever and we need to have someone else host. Randomly this'll fix itself or not be a problem though. Another annoyance is when calls drop when my friends and I are playing games. Happens once or twice a month. It's odd that it does too, because generally we'll be gaming at the time and when the call drops we're all still playing and the game isn't interrupted at all. Ah well.

    Weird. I've never had major issues with Skype, and my laptop is the very definition of shit.

    Though, sometimes Skype will freeze up and drag everything else down with it, so I can see how it's frustrating.

    The only time I ever have my memory usage close to 100K is when I use Skype to video call as well as voice. That isn't really that much memory compared to how poorly chrome handles web pages. If you are just using it for text you can get Trillian or use IM+ online.

    I use Ubuntu on my laptop and Skype runs a tad better on it, but not by much. The UI bothers me on it a lot though, haha.

    Yeah I can't complain since Chrome is currently using 1,071,784K right now with 5 tabs open. (I haven't closed it in days though so that probably doesn't help much)

    Agreed, it's not great. Everything's all over the place, and separate windows for everything. But at least it works.
