I've never really understood their claim to be based on the P2P model. How, exactly, does that apply in this context? Just because a conversation between you and others aren't going through a centralized server they call it "P2P"? Because you're using the bandwidth of other people on the Skype network even if they're not on that conversation themselves? (I don't believe that to be the case because I can leave Skype running in the background for weeks and it'll never use any bandwidth at all if I don't touch it)...

So WTH? Overly broad definition? Buzzwords for the sake buzzwords?

Um, yeah. P2P, or peer-to-peer, means you're specifically not connecting to a centralized server, but instead connecting right to your peer. You're a peer, they're a peer, you're connecting to each other. Perhaps you should look up the definition of something before you claim something is not specifically that something you know absolutely nothing about.

Thank you for your insight.

By this definition, I could write a 3-line winsock app that establishes a connection to some remote machine and claim it's P2P.
