    Default Skype? Starting to need it on laptop

    I hope this is the right place to post this.

    I can now print with openSuSe Leap! Can Scan now, could be better!!
    I can backup my iPod and iPad with Windows, can't with Linux.(Will get there someday!)

    We had a related thread here a couple of months ago, Bill.

    I am still using the official Skype repo, at: https://https//repo.skype.com/rpm/stable/

    Hope this helps.

    I used to do a lot of Skype calls but since the time of quarantine and virus situation in general I was stuck in my property in Germany for weeks and a company I work for obligated us to use Zoom. So now I use it more often.

    I asked about Zoom, but The outfit am telephoning to uses skype and facetime. Wouldn't ya know it, MS and Apple! Like there aren't other options that may be better, and used more. Oddly enough the agent that I talk to there uses and android phone.
