SightSpeed Goes Linux

I’ve been waiting for this for a while now. SightSpeed is announcing today that they are making a Linux version of their video conferencing application available for Linux–specifically pre-installed on Dell’s newly-launched Inspiron Mini 9 device. Dell Video Chat for SightSpeed powered by SightSpeed, as it is called, is available pre-installed on both the Linux and Windows XP versions of these devices!

The press release goes into how well-suited SightSpeed video is for these lower-end notebooks. I can attest to just how little CPU horsepower is needed to run SightSpeed based on personal experience. While you can sometimes get great video from Skype with the High Quality video, the SightSpeed video experience is far more consistent under lesser CPU and bandwidth conditions!

Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to a downloadable version of the Linux SightSpeed so I can test it out for myself.
