    Yes, sorry, I apologize for that. It was uncalled for.
    As for the rest, yes, I kind of agree. Google's main goal isn't supporting Free software, it's making money. At least they do support it, which is better than nothing.

    So does every other big company supporting free software, without which Linux wouldn't be anywhere near as usable as it is today.

    Even if such a thing existed (a FB video calling plugin for Linux), I wouldn't be caught dead using it. FB is FB.

    Slightly (okay, very) off-topic, just how often do you change your sig, haqking? I've seen at least 3 different ones in the past 1-2 months or so.

    I really can't see video chat taking off to be honest.

    I'd be taping over the camera lens when I wasn't using it for a start.

    It doesn't bother me because I requested my Facebook account be deleted 2 weeks ago and I do not miss it in the slightest.

    As far as I can tell it is using flash player.
