Gimme the source code, and I stop saying that. In the meanwhile, I use skype only for personal use, no business could _secretely_ conducted over skype unless otherwise proven.

So, what do you use instead ?

I mean this as an honest question.

You don't trust Skype, fine. But do you then instead trust your cellphone-manufacturer, the company running your cell-network, and all operators of other telephone-networks which your call passes trough instead ?

SIP w/ zRTP / sRTP works quite fine. Only three-way conference possible with Twinkle client without server support, though. I think setting up an encrypted conference room on a SIP server is more complicated, but someone could know better.
