It is. I don't use it regularly, but it I installed it with no problem
and it starts up just fine for me. How did you install T-Bird?

It's hard to know how to advise you if you don't explain (a) how you
installed Skype; (b) what "isn't working" means; and (c) what you've
tried. It might even help to explain what "intuitive things" in FC4 you
think are missing. If you just want to complain, fine. But if you
really want our help, you have to help us.

Or take a few deep breaths and explain what you're trying to accomplish
and what trouble you're having
