I have had to go back to Windows because every time I leave the house for a few days I get a call that Skype isn't working again. Or I get an update and Skype audio has stopped working again. This time I spent days trying to troubleshoot Alsa and finally had to give up and installed Windows. Skype is our house phone. We need it.
Is there some trick to getting Skype to run stably and consitantly in Linux? Maybe a different distro? Different sound servers?
I've been using Linux since 2002 and I really hate to go back to Windows, but I don't have time to keep fixing things.
