I live in rural Bandera, Tx and have been using Skype w/USB phone for the past month on my Dell Inspiron laptop. For broadband connectivity, I use a Sprint aircard. I pay $4.00 a month to make phone calls anywhere in the USA. I pay nothing to talk internationally to my relatives who also have Skype.
Sadly, my laptop is only 32 bit and I've been using Windows Vista OS. I really like FAST, FREE (as in troublefree) surfing experiences while I search for the end of the Internet (I'm told it has no beginning and it has no end).
I'm thinking that I will buy a 64 bit laptop and / or desktop in the next few months because I only have one laptop right now... The laptop I have has been in the shop for several hardware failures (and it's a dell). Thank goodness, it's under warranty. I need to have a spare one for my jobs. I freelance write, telecommute for my software engineering job and also work for CHCS.
I plan on installing Ubuntu and use Skype. Any Suggestions?
