    As all regular users of Skype know there are outages from time to time. For instance, for some odd reason I've had three
    in the last 30 minutes. Correction, 4. This thing is literally beginning to pulse! Well, nice thing about the net is there
    isn't 1 or 2 options for anything.

    Here are ten skype alternatives. Haven't tried them yet but something tells me the first one might be superior. Enjoy and deploy. :ranger:

    Anybody else notice the word 'encryption' is not mentioned once anywhere? For me, that is the ONLY reason to use Skype. Without that, all these alternatives = FAIL.

    I have to say though, I believe Skype has sold out to government and intelligence agencies, proving a backdoor for them to easily tap your calls. Or is that not what you are referring to?

    Being a US based company they have to flex to any GOVT requests or court orders, if you think skype is offering true safety with their encryption then think again.....

    Ventrillo is an somewhat of an alternative to Skype. A server for 5 is only about $2/month.
