There are plenty, like ekiga and such.  They have the advantage of using
open standards like SIP, h.323 and such, unlike skype which uses
a horrible p2p protocol that only skype understands.

Skype's only purpose is to get everybody locked in to their private
standard.  They are almsot as bad as microsoft that way.
