Yes yes we all hate paying for shit. Why can't real life be 100% free? It's just not fair that we have to pay for anything!
Explain to me how it costs MS more than pocket change to run Skype.
User to user calls exchange data directly between the users. The only thing anyone needs MS for is to maintain the database of user names so that when you tell it you want to call Bob219, it knows what IP address to connect to. If Skype allowed users to enter IP addresses directly, they wouldn't need MS at all.
