My logic lecturer broke away from his lecture the other day and went on some huge rant about this.

Unless you have a piece of very old or unique hardware...lordbob is correct

not quite.. I do have to admit for the first time ever, most of the hardware was automatically detected and installed from the windows update site... but ubuntu is free, and everything works right off the live cd... which can be emulated with freeware on a flash drive. I have heard it is possible to do the same with windows 7, but have not been able to make it work.

LOL, the Videophone has been around for about 5 or 6 years now for general public. I am Hard-of-Hearing and my deaf (NOT Gallaudet University - screw that AIDS infected campus) college/high school use Videophones every 3 feet of the way in every direction you walk in. I have my own as well, they're all from Sorenson. The first model was VP-100 and now the current one is VP-200 (the one I use), there is NO point in Videophone for hearing people which is why general public thinks it doesn't exist.

I saw a TV commercial, within the last couple of days, where Verizon was offering a camera cell phone. On one side phone, on the other a camera. Since a person doesn't have to face the phone to talk, he could transmit audio and video simutaneously...ala videophone.
