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."

Skype on linux is very buggy, I've heard that Skype on Mac wasn't very good either (people frequently complain about its UI), and with Microsoft on top you can bet that this is not going to change.
