That's not the real reason for me, though. I don't mind setting up a
proper SIP phone and piercing holes in the firewall; I'd rather prefer to
do it in a way I control than have Skype obfuscate its way through
whatever ports it manages to use.
Whether Skype's GUI is easy and convenient to use is also a matter of
taste. One of the worst in my personal opinion. But with Skype, you get no

This is the real problem, though. In reply to “please call me on Skype”, I
really can't tell everyone to do the above instead.

Their prices are NOT the best on the VoIP market, at least for calling to
countries they don't consider a priority, such as Russia. Calling to
Russia is several times as cheap on the free market.
