Zonbu may get web cam support via Skype 2.0 for Linux

Skype Video CallGreat news. Skype 2.0 beta has dropped for Linux – and it contains webcam support.

Regular readers will know that I feel that the lack of webcam support in the Zonbu is a major hurdle to adoption. While I would really like to see support for MSN webcam sessions, I would accept Skype 2.0 as a viable alternative, as long as Grandma can talk to my son from her Windows (or future Zonbu) machine and her Logitech quickcam.

I wonder what, if any hurdles, are involved in supporting this on the Zonbu?

You can read more about the Skype beta on their site, although the wording is a bit strange…
