RMS never liked Skype:
Skype is a special exception: it is worse than most nonfree software,
because using Skype to talk with someone else means that other person
must use Skype too. Even supposing my host has Skype already installed
on his computer, my using it briefly would not be harmless — it would
constitute encouraging my interlocutor to have and use Skype. My
conclusion is: never use Skype even for a moment.
