skype alternatives
Authored by: Anonymous on Saturday, November 17 2012 @ 06:37 PM EST
I have worked for two companies in a row that would only open
their firewalls to skype for chatting. Not Yahoo Messenger,
not Google's version, only skype. An alternative that gets
widespread acceptance may be hard to find.

Microsoft has released Skype 4.1 for Linux
Authored by: odysseus on Monday, November 19 2012 @ 07:50 AM EST
There's no problem with the many many valid workable alternative protocols and
apps, the problem comes from the address book which is where the true power of
Skype / GTalk / Yahoo / MSN / etc lies. There is no replacement for that.
Witness MS throwing away MSN and merging it with Skype, they didn't buy it for
the tech, or even the brand, but for the address book. It's the same lock-in
that Facebook has.
