BTW, short of Skype being available on the 2008 OS n8xx platform, there 
is the 'almost free' option to use Gismo project and just phone out 
whoever isn't on Gismo with minutes you buy for a notch less than 2 
cents a minute.   I'm not sure how it all works, but apparently 
according the Gismo web site you can also use the same minutes for video 
conversations with various messenger services that support video such as 
Windows Messenger Live (or whatever it's called), if you really want the 
video option instead of pidgin IM.  Twenty bucks gets you 1000 minutes.  
Not free, but pretty close.  Also, the minutes don't disappear at the 
end of the month...
