Has anybody setup Raspberry Pi as cheap desktop PC for their family?
I would like to do that but first think I stumbled is Skype. My sister studies abroad so she and my mother talk a lot on Skype, and there is no Skype version for Raspberry Pi (arm cpu).
Is there any other VOIP app that works as great as Skype and is easy for parents to use? Video is not a strict requirement but a nice to have feature...
There is some talk on Raspberry Pi forums that MAYBE Skype will be able to run someday, but not today - http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1891
