Considering getting a Eee PC 900a and loading Ubuntu (eeebuntu) onto it, I intend to use it for web browsing and placing Skype calls. From what I can see Skype has a Linux version of there software, so that should not be a problem. Anyone out there running Skype?

I am more concerned about my headset, can anyone tell me if the LifeChat LX-3000 is supported by Ubuntu? I would really like to run Ubuntu, but not if I can't use my USB headset.


Thanks,
Patrick

sudo apt-get install skype
