I'm not a complete newbie, but I have been out of the Linux loop for a while, but I am eager to give it another go.
I've been doing my research to knock down those barriers that are stopping me from making the switch, and it seems that only one remains for me to overcome:
Video chatting on the MSN protocol.
I used to be able to do so on Empathy at one time, but from what I can gather, the feature is broken at present, or at least, it was back in November of '11, and I can't seem to find any recent information on the availability of this feature with other clients.
Being able to video chat in MSN is probably the TOP of my list of priorities, given that the majority of people I interact with online use it, and won't consider switching to Skype or anything else for that matter, and an easy 60% of my day is taken up by MSN video/voice interactions. So it is kind of a deal breaker for me.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? I intend to use 12.04 (64-bit) when it is released. I just need a stable, reliable method of conducting a straightforward MSN video and voice chat?
Thank you in advance for your assistance
