Why do people insist on Skype, when it is obviously a mediocre solution?

I'll take anything over Skype, even Face Time or the dumpster fire that is Google Hangouts. Google Duo, even, if I am desperate enough.

And for the record, as far as I know, only Signal is a "reasonably" secure solution. Not great for video calls, but adequate.

No, WhatsApp and Telegram do not count. WhatsApp is Facebook (bleargh) and Telegram rolled its own encryption scheme, which is just a big NO.

It's a great solution, but only for tech-savvy people.
It's unfortunately not easily usable/understandable for most of the people...

@skynebula @adamd

Yup, that's pretty much what I think as well. I'll definitely take a look at it in the future, though.
