While I think the technology behind Skype is fantastic, the fact that it is closed source and hidden means I will NEVER use it. How about this news about the Chinese government tracking all text on Skype. Who know who else is tracking. I therefore urge any and all of those who are reading this post and using skype to stop it immediately. This somewhat dated commentary about Skype’s security is (a more currentone), sadly still valid in that they have not done enough to show that they are above board. Use ekiga or any other SIP/VoIP solution, like FWD, and not skype. Please.
