Yes, I know it's not really 'free' software ;-)

I noticed a few people mentioning Skype and I wonder of anyone has the 
same problem I have on my HP Pavillion 5000 laptop. Skype works fine, 
except for microphone input at my end. People can just about hear me, 
but it's garbled. I've tried the Skype test number and I now see what 
they mean!

Sound generally, works fine on my laptop under 6.06.1 LTS, including the 
microphone input. The problem seems to be Skype dropping packets going 
out. it doesn't make any difference if I'm at work on ATM or at home on 
broadband. Same problem.

What are other people's experience with Skype under Linux?

[My Skype name is "ajtravis" is you want to chat]
