*** I don't know either, but Jitsi provides such a good alternative to
Skype that the only blocking "feature" is the social network: when
people using skype intensively decide to switch to Jitsi (or other
SIP-compatible clients), it's done. Is it merely a matter of marketing
and network effect? Is it a matter of promoting SIP services at ISP
level? How to beat the inertia of a bad habit?
