• Gmail Voice and Video Chat Comes to Linux


    Google has released a highly-requested Gmail feature for Linux users: video and voice chat.

    Ubuntu and other Debian-based Linux distributions are supported, with RPM support coming soon. To try it out, download the required plugin at gmail.com/videochat.
    The release may be good news, but it leaves a sour taste for many Linux users, since it took Google nearly two years to release this feature for Linux. Yes, itís nice to finally have the feature, but it wonít change the oft-heard notion that Linux is just an afterthought to Google.
