Skype, the Internet voice-calling service created by Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis, just turned nine years old.

It now accounts for one out of three international voice minutes, according to a research report from Telegeography cited by GigaOm’s Om Malik.

Now that it’s owned by Microsoft, Skype is going to be built into Windows PCs and Windows Phone devices—meaning that number should just keep going up and up.
