Re: Nadella pledged to make ... Skype essential parts of daily life.

Wow, downvoted for asking a perfectly reasonable question.

This is the Reg, and the comments section for a story about Microsoft at that. Reason will not be tolerated.

I admit that I can't offhand think of a Skype competitor that's free, integrates with POTS, is easy for non-technical users to install and use, and is any less likely to be spied upon by the intelligence services. I don't have any special love for Skype (and for work purposes I use or have used various commercial alternatives, some of which work pretty well), but where my threat model permits, it does the job. And frankly my threat model generally permits.
