Skype users all appear to be very happy to do so....
That's true, but I meant it's usually limited how many connections your skype client is able to redirect. No one is willing to fork money for server infrastructure doing same for thousands of people.

And this is why it would be nice to have opensource application doing the same thing as skype. It's basicly only way to compete with commercial providers.

It's also the reason how Skype was able to compete in the market as they didn't need big server infrastructure to keep calls working.
