I too am furious about this, but let's face it.... it was only a matter
of time before they screwed us.  I tried installing pulseaudio, and - no
surprise - it didn't work out of the box. I have no desire to fiddle
with it, so my next workaround is to install a WinXP VM under Virtualbox
and run the Win client (which I haven't quite got done yet). Let's hope
the XP install disk and validation code I've got will work for a VM that
needs to be on the net :=\

I, otoh, would love to hear others' ideas about alternatives. My wife
has been hearing about LINE from her friends, so I'm thinking I need to
learn more about that....
