Re: default messaging/VoIP client for Debian 8/Jessie

I use JAVA for eclipse (mostly good but a bit of a pain at times but I
need a particular plugin for embedded work, commercial prog dependence
in other cases) but think JAVA by default would be a big negative even
aside from being a dpig, especially for anything network facing and
especially without config lock down. Does it require the web plugin?

p.s. I've been waiting/hoping to get a proper *nix/nux on my phone but
do any of them work with Android and Iphone as they are a bit pointless
without friends and I don't like whatsapp as it's made my phone act a
bit funny and has eaten up valuable memory.

Tox has been mentioned on the OpenBSD ports list recently which got my
attention and has a pidgin plugin and android client but I think you
would need ekiga/asterisk for sip and it's stated as not 'complete' yet

I have no idea why RTFM is used so aggressively on LINUX mailing lists
because whilst 'apropos' is traditionally the most powerful command on
Unix-like systems it's 'modern' replacement 'apropos' on Linux is a tool
to help psychopaths learn to control their anger.
