There are a lot of IM clients if all you want is text.
There are a hand full of voip clients but none are as robust and
secure as skype, and not all have linux clients.

Skype does not have major security risks. Yes the protocol
has been cracked, but there there are no exploits available.
Those cracking it wanted to block it, not hijack it.

Still, Using it on linux is safer than on Windows.
