In theory, Skype, which is based on peer-to-peer networking technology shouldn’t see an outage.

TmcNet tells this kind of thing about that Shutting down.
"They also had a DNS issue back in 2004. Not exactly good timing with the impending IPO and people wanting to wish each other Merry Christmas in 3 days. I was able to login, but my buddy list looks mostly offline, which is very unusual.

This is what Skype saying at that moment on their Twitter Channel.(Source:TechCrunch)

Someone posted this Video to Youtube about the Skype's shutting down.

Hope as soon as possible they may overcome those all problems. :)
