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."

Just look at OpenOffice, what's their market share?

I globally agree with your comment, but this is not necessarily the best example you could pick.

Here, I see OpenOffice adopted more and more around me, by governmental institutions like schools or the police which figure out that they could do something interesting with all that money that MS Office costs.
