Skype VOIP methods

Hi all. I was wondering if any of you had more comments to add to the following eg how to implement/design a similar network; where more details are to be found on this subject etc. I presume by their method, that several users become hosts, serving client machines with IP address information etc (or not?)

The key paragraph: Decentralized P2P networks have several advantages over traditional client-server networks. These networks scale indefinitely without increasing search time and without the need for costly centralized resources. They utilize the processing and networking power of the end-users machines since these resources always grow in direct proportion to the network itself. Each new node added to the network adds potential processing power and bandwidth to the network. Thus, by decentralizing resources, second generation (2G) P2P networks have been able to virtually eliminate costs associated with a large centralized infrastructure. ENDS

Good luck using P2P in enterprises where they specifcally ban p2p communication. Also, Skype hasn't got any major suppliers behind it for offering true standalone IP phones. Sure they have USB devices, but who wants to only make and receive calls when your PC is on?
