+ - The cause of Skype outage

It seems that a Windows Update trigged a large number of computers to reboot within a short timeframe resulting in a flood of login requests. This combined with a lack to P2P network resources caused the disruption. The outage brings to question the reliability of VoIP and its ability to replace POTS."

If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.
