    Phoronix: Skype Open-Source Update Expected Soon

    Back in November there was an official announcement from Skype concerning an open-source Linux client. Details since then have been scarce on what exactly Skype plans to provide as open-source software, with some speculating just the user-interface/front-end side will be opened up. Skype though has continued in recent months of providing new Linux betas of their closed-source Linux client that still has yet to reach a feature parity with the Skype Windows client. No open-source Skype news updates have come since their original blog-style announcement...

    I'm only saddened by your lack of judgement
    Rofl, yes. Saddening stuff.

    I'm only saddened by your lack of judgement, that enabled you to take a valid observation for an "unnecessary outburst of disgust". But I guess you simply disapproved of my off-topic intervention and--not knowing any better--mixed some words together, splashed them in a couple of ready-made phrases and let them do the thinking for you.

    Ah, man. Is that it? Seriously?

    i bet it won't come out of skype.

    there are two things that need to be done
    - r.e. that stupid protocol and come up with open library
    - make an independent server

    ah, the wonderful 1min edit limit.
