I've been hunting for a good Skype replacement for a while too. I recently came 
across Jitsi. It's completely replaced Skype for me. Jitsi is open source and 
free, integrates with a bunch of networks (XMPP, Yahoo, MSN, etc), and allows 
you to do encrypted voice and text chat with other users on existing networks. 
It's cross platform too (written in Java) and works well on both Windows and 
Linux.  It doesn't allow you to call Skype contacts since Skype won't let 
anyone in but you can make and receive phone calls pretty cheap by using a SIP 
provider. 

Check out the website at www.jitsi.org

HTH,
Anthony
