Re: Skype under Fedora-10



Kevin seems to be distraught over the possibility that his friends
might be able, through pressure, to force him into a choice of using a
system he doesn't like, or not being in touch with people.

Skype is a proprietary social service.  The only pressure to use it is
a social one, which isn't to be taken lightly.  It's quite formidable.
 That social pressure is why he sees Skype as dangerous.  You don't
really have a "free choice" to reject proprietary software if
pragmatism of any form (social, economical, political) forces your
hand.
