Slightly nicer graphics, seems a bit more prone to crash--the Fedora rpm installs more easily might be
Fedora's doing, rather than Skype's.  Previously, on 64 bit systems, one had to manually get a lot of the
32 bit libs, now one can download the 32 bit rpm, run yum install <rpm_name> and it fetches all that's needed.

Seems a bit flakier on Arch than Fedora, which is the opposite of how things usually go for me, but not
well tested save on Arch.  

Using it this week while my lovely wife is over there--well, in Oosaka and Hiroshima, anyway.
