i hope the rest of the system remains free of that fucking proprietary spyware crap (encrypted binary, encrypted traffic, analyzes the hardware it runs on, stupid PR gag against AMD, different binaries for chinese IPs, ...). i tried to configure skype on a friend's winxp computer not to start when at system startup. the config dialog said "Saving options. This may take some minutes" for over half an hour. holy crap!
for those who are not yet into skype bashing:
it's a shame the english wikipedia does not have a "criticism" section in the article.
