As mentioned in previous posts, terminating all "relationships" with Windows/MS.
Last Hurdle: skype:
- Desktop-based Video-calling ("Video-chatting") from/to U.S. and Poland. (NOT "VOIP" voice-only) ("CallCenter" did not specify)
- U.S "Landline" number (aka "DID"?) for, primarily, Caller ID functionality when Desktop-calling from Poland (for relatives, and my bank, to recognize who is calling)... In Poland, not available with Google/gmail account
As with skype, this is a fee-based subscription...(not a problem paying fro it).
Absolutely no need to "Grow my business" (this is strictly for personal, occasional use).
Nor do I have a need to "interface" with large groups of people... "whiteboard", "file-sharing", etc. etc.
(My entire family in one "chat", at the same time, is very, very, dis-recommended
- "softphone", "virtual phone" desktop interface
This is typically installed when downloading/installing skype.
Zoiper will only answer maybe/possibly/yes/no questions regarding functionality... unless, to the tune of 60Euros, as a paid subscriber.
Contacted "FossLinux" for recommenadations
Also contacted Apache OpenMeetings...
Any insights, from/for Windows refugees?
This is not an "on-the-cheap" effort; I am not averse to paying for the services that I use (in fact, typically, when asked, I "support the cause", through donations.. it ain't much, but, give what I can)
this is my last, and final, step to full immigration to Zorintopia
thanks to many that have so patiently guided me through this sojourn,
