I currently use Skype to do video chats with folks that I know across the world, but I've been finding that its performance has been pretty horrible. Dropped connections, horrible video performance, etc., and after narrowing it down, I've determine that for whatever reason Skype's version 5 just isn't liking the computers that myself and others use.
So I was wondering if there are any other video chat programs out there that would be a step up. I've tried others such as MSN and Yahoo but they're not that great quality-wise, and don't allow folks that are using Linux to join in. So anything that would work with Windows XP or newer and Linux, and be a step up in reliability would be welcomed.
