messanger should work and I think has worked for a while. (pidgin does that, right?)
pendrives work (if you set your groups up correctly).
skype...I dunno... I'm assuming you just need local mic and sound so I
don't see why not, but I've never really used skype.
webcams I don't know about, but I'm sure it would be possible to hack
something together to make this work, otherwise you could maybe run
whatever webcam app as a local app...
Pulse works really well. Local devices are a little strange if you're
used to the *nix way of dealing with devices (async fs,
mount/unmount), but definitely work. So webcam and skype are a big ?,
but I assume in a worst case these could be run locally...
Anyone else know about the things I don't?
