Yes, you are misssing the people, who are on the road and are  
participating by using an archaic phonecall, that is working fine even  
on places or situations where access to a computer keyboard or  
internet is limited (like riding in the car or waiting for a train).

The second point is, that out telco server is allowing us to stream  
the meeting. (Mumble only supports recording in the newer versions,  
but no streaming)

Skype is bad in many ways - no phone conferences with more than 16  
People (and it gets unstable with more than 12 quite often), no  
streaming, no recording, unfree software that has included spying  
features in a non-transparent way. (We are not strive for secrecy,  
since we want open and transparent meetings, but no one knows what  
data is being collected by skype and in whose order or benefit)

Of cause you can still use your computer and a soft-phone (a SIP  
client) to dial in our telco server, if you do not have a phone or  
prefer to communicate over computer.
