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."

Microsoft offers the WLM service to their clients and no one else. It is not a public service like the PSTN.

Tell that to the many hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of users not using their clients and a majority of them have no means of running their clients even if they could possibly want to.
