How Skype kills part of Fring and Nimbuzz

I also dared to show my disagreement with the less than popular measure from Skype against Fring and Nimbuzz, but Jörg alias Nafcom made a really good analysis about the why's and How's, read here: Nafcom's Crap Blog!: Bad decisions by previous heros in the industry cause people hitting on the forehead: Skype.

25 million

25 million people online last Monday, 28 days after the previous milestone. Nice result, still growth of concurrent Skype users online, and the 5th milestone this year. The last months were - in my opinion – deceiving but there still is growth.

In 2009 we crossed 6 times a million milestone.

I don’t think that we will add another million before the end of the year, because there is every year a slowdown of users online in that period, but … who knows.
