Yes, it works fine, and as far as I know, the sound is OK for things like
Skype.  Currently, I get round the disconnecting problem by using my EEEPC
to talk to my brother on Skype, using the C250 instead of the low-res
built-in mic. The EEEPC has 11.10 as well.

Just tried the mic in Sound Recorder, and that was OK too.
