One has to imagine the purchase will mean the death knell for Skype on 
anything but MS products.

Perhaps it'll push Apple to get around to actually delivering cross-platform 
Facetime products.

Interesting. Good deal for Skype. Annoying for some users. Really annoying 
to mobile carriers.

RT @DamianM: Skype to be renamed to "Microsoft Windows VOIP Cloud Talky 
Talky Foundation Services.NET"
