[tpm] Skype on Linux

I've also used Skype on Linux multiple times, with a USB headset. If I
haven't used it in a while, I always make a test call before I want to use
it to make sure that it works properly.

Strangely enough, I haven't used it on Windows 7 until a few weeks ago --
the same USB headset worked fine for me there as well.
