Internet & Networking "One researcher has decided he wants to make Skype open source by reverse engineering the protocol the service uses. In fact, he claims to have already achieved that reverse engineering feat on a new skype-open-source blog. The source code has been posted for versions 1.x/3.x/4.x of Skype as well as details of the rc4 layer arithmetic encoding the service uses."

When SKYPE is already releasing the application almost all the platform, including Linux. Then why do we need the same app in open source, I didn't get it.
But I appreciate the hard work to reverse engineer.
