Skype vs. Mumble

However, you can easily set up your own server. There is no license required.

On windows the server is packaged with the installer; called Murmur. You can install it alongside mumble and run it by double-clicking. On linux most provide packages for the server as well; alternatively you can use the static server.

Be aware though that hosting a server, depending on your router, you may have to handle port forwarding etc.

Using a server instead of direct client connections is one advantage; clients not having to hassle with such setups. Another is, for skype, you still need a server to initiate the call. So why not use it right away for data transfer? After all, servers most of the time have more bandwidth to distribute the audio data; increasingly with more and more users.
