And Now Gizmo Works on Linux

It was nice that the folks from Gizmo commented on my blog entry that it was fixed. It’s better that the client actually works properly now. :)

Now I guess my only complaint is that Gizmo isn’t ALSA-compliant and I have to run it with the aoss emulation layer. But I can live with that. Meanwhile, I can leave the client running on my Linux desktop.

While I haven’t done a side-by-side comparison with Gizmo on Windows, it looks like a lot of the functionality in the Windows (and prsumably Mac) clients are in the Linux client as well. Certainly got a lot closer to “feature” parity than the venerable Skype is. I bet you can guess which client I will be using more as a result… :)
