They wont go anywhere. There are tens to hundreds of thousands of guys like Wifee and I making near daily international calls to non Skype users. Jack the rates they may but they can't drop Linux. Most ex patrIOTs are smart enough not to buy into Gates version of slavery.......nor the "land of the fee" itself's for that matter. Most are Ubuntu-Mint types.Very few even dual boot any more.I just put $10 in each of our accounts a few minutes ago. If another 1000 of us did this week that becomes real money worthy of putting a developer on for a couple hours to release a little code to Lunuxers.Don't be fooled. Lots of Microshaft guys use our superior OS over the tripe they spend with their elbows in all week long.Many others run Macs....especially since they can get their hands on that code too. Just because your a DEA agent doesn't mean you don't roll up after work !

I'm keeping an eye on this developing situation, and will react with the best interests of the community in mind.
Much appreciated

Recent reply from them about the email error.

http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/02/skype-for-linux-keep-working-email-error

I wonder if it may be no error, but they have realized the number of Linux users, and made a turn around. Thoughts on this ?

You can even stick with Jitsi. The WebRTC solution you can use without any account is here:

https://meet.jit.si/

There are many other WebRTC websites available. Another quite reliable one is Talky: https://talky.io/

Benefit with Jitsi and Appear is that they offer an Android app which makes it dead easy to connect even via phone.

Other interesting projects in my books:

* Wire
- now supports also Linux, even if it seems to be via electron, i.e. being a web wrapper
- It really looks good. I also like that you have the choice to sign up with email OR phone number
https://wire.com/

 * Ring
- I have been watching for quite some time and they made quite some progress
- not as mature as Wire
- but more Linux supportive/ even centric. It's meanwhile a GNU project.
- great philosophy behind it
- can integrate an existing SIP account
