TrueCrypt might not be the best option, if you plan on having the image mounted in several machines, due to sync issues as mentioned by sibling posts. If you're on *nix, encfs is a better solution, as it works individually on each file, and can handle the updates without remounting.

i haven't much used the gtalk audio/video calls, but I don't think it has multi-party calls, screen sharing or PSTN integration, both for dial out and dial in (except maybe through Google voice? But even then it'd be US only). The basic components might be there, namely the actual video calling and the huge user base, but I wouldn't call it a strong competitor for skype just yet.

Probably you'd see a similar distribution, but shifted somewhat to the right. Although we have our share of stupid people making stupid comments here, head over to youtube, digg, or some other "wider audience" site and you'll find whole new levels of stupidity.
