You must be using kernel since you probably have multi core machine. Linux emulation doesn't interact well with kernel. That is well know bug and there is no fix for it. Try running Opera and Skype on bsd kernel.
Yes, I'm using, this must be the problem then.
Does running bsd.sp affect performance a lot?

FreeBSD emulation is also dead as far as I know. You can not run any 6.0 or latter binaries.
There are FreeBSD 5 and FreeBSD 6 binaries for Opera ... (Not for Skype though ...)

As a sidenote, I really, really dislike Skype I only use it because some people I know will not use anything else Now I have to fire up a Windows machine every time I want to use it ... :-/
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
