Kostya Kortchinsky of Immunity Security "discovered the Linux supernodes using a Skype probing technique he and colleague Fabrice Desclaux first demonstrated in 2006", according to Ars Technica. The drastic infrastructure change doesn't affect the peer-to-peer nature of the calls between Skype users.
