How do you say that Skype has set the point of zero cost of VoIP phone to VoIP phone calls? Haven't FWD and SIPPhone and many others done that much earlier?

Aswath, Yes, my choice of Skype was a bit arbitrary. VocalTec's Internet Phone software provided VoIP to VoIP calling in 1995 and I've certainly used both FWD and SIPPhone more recently (although not in the past 12 months).

However, Skype has dramatically higher name recognition and higher usage (eBay claims 7% of all international voice traffic) compared to any prior VoIP service.
