With Google's recent announcement that they're going to extend the free U.S. and Canada calling through 2011, Google has become much more attractive.

Also, since I was supposed to renew my Skype number tomorrow and PAY for another 3 months – I'm just not feeling comfortable with that after today.

Am I over-reacting? I don't think so. I'll maintain Skype for it's IM functionality, but will now be doing the majority of my internet telephony calls using my Google Voice number.
