Okay here's the deal, there is a bug about this (or so it seems) that I reported (it's been changed a lot since then); Skype is crashing and random/on clicks (e.g. adding a contact). I'm tired of Skype, but unfortunately I don't rule the world and I can make anyone switch. Are there any alternate clients? Like something I can use to connect to Skype, add contacts, and chat? Video support would be nice, but it's optional. I know SkypeKit needs a payment first, so it's unlikely anyone has made anything with it, but, I'm DESPERATE right now -__- (the crashing has made me lose stuff, so I'm a bit... you know).
ANYTHING that works would be GREATLY appreciated.
I'll use ekiga for contacts who don't care about Skype, but some won't switch so ekiga is off the list :P
