Hello, I run a system with 256 mb of ram and a 1.67 ghz processor aka amd 2000 
and i find, when i'm activly using skype. it uses about 30 meggs of my systems 
ram, this is unexcusable, what voice application need to use that much ram?
Right now, currently, skype is just sitting there, and its at. uh, lets see, 11 
meggs of ram on idle.
I think there's a problem here?
Teamtalk, my voice application of choice only uses one meg of memory with it 
activly working in the system tray.

Not to start a flame, and Im only gonna say this one time, and one time 
only, as I do not wanna again, start an argument, but in all do respect, 
Patrick, you have far more ram than I do, and I'm running and have been 
running Skype with no problems as far as memory resources being hogged.  I 
don't wanna discourage people from trying it who haven't.  As long as set 
correctly and properly configured, it actually does wonders.
