Submission + - Skype for Linux Open-sourced "in nearest future"? (ofaurax.free.fr)

rysiek writes: Seems like there might be a revolution in the works, as far as VoIP software for Linux is concerned — after mailing Skype support about Skype providing Mandriva RPM packages, Olivier Faurax got an answer that seems to suggest that Linux Skype client will be open-sourced. After asking for verification, if that is the case, the tech support answer claimed it is going to happen, and that it's supposed to happen "in nearest future". Now, this probably only means the client (underlying protocol will probably be handled by a binary-only library), but even if that's the case, seems like there is still reason to celebrate.
