Internet & Networking We waited a little while with this news, because we wanted official confirmation from Skype before jumping on the internet bandwagon. It's official now, so here we go: Skype has announced that it will release its Linux client as open source. A little late, but welcome nonetheless.

A lightweight Windows/Mac client too?

Let's hope the code can be used to make a small, lightweight, unbloated client for Windows and Mac also. The newer 'official' versions are just getting worse and worse...

The Mac version is fine thank you very much. While version 4 on Windows really is an abomination.
