The calls over the Internet (VOIP) software that was not the first, some would say was not the best either, but that turned out to be the most popular. Thanks to the "Network Effect" which means that this type of software's value rises with the number of users, it was difficult for the competitors to catch up.
Skype's acquisition by Microsoft did it only good by connecting it to Microsoft's software and services and by adding MSN Messenger's users upon its closing. You will probably be able to find services that allow you to do everything that Skype does just as good and sometimes for free (for advanced features such as multi user video chat, Skype charges money). However, once you try to convince all your friends to use the new found competitor's service while their Skype account is active, you will find out that it is easier to simply open the software and communicate with the world. Skype's applications for Android, Windows Mobile and iPhone will ensure that you will be available from the mobile device you use as well. But when there's a WiFi connection available it is recommended that you manage your contact list and calls through the PC software which performs better than the version for Smartphones.
