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."

Young man, let's think business. Imagine you and I build a great car, most advanced in the world, and three people have bought it.

Do you believe then, that parts manufacturers must build and stock parts for our car?

Not on your lifetime! Mentioning other OS's like BSD, Haiku (are you in a dream?) is showing some of you people total lack of reality.
Yes, it sounds harsh, but it is the truth. Take some business classes. It will help your life quite a bit later on.
