I don't much care that their client protocol isn't getting opened up, as long as it works well enough on any given platform in its binary blobs.  The possiblity of making a decent gui for linux/other OSes, is a huge benefit.  I hate how terrible the linux and mac guis for skype are compared to the windows version.  They really do need help making it better...this is probably their most clever way of admitting it.

This could, in theory, push cellular providers out the door. At bare minimum push the standard home phone into the stone ages.

Perhaps.  But on what network will you be making said Skype calls?  I don't see a nationwide, free Wi-Fi service on my phone's network list...

Intel is working on a solution to nation wide WiFi. It is called WiMAX. It is basically a series of wireless towers overlapping the signal over a city.

Yeah. Welcome to 2003. Let me know when WiMax is finished.
