Official: Microsoft buys Skype for $8.5bn


Skype was dying anyway

All those people who claimed skype was the best should ask why they did not pay for the premuim services earlier.

Skype was making a loss year after year, they would have died eventually or they would have been bought by Google which would have assimulated Skype into google talk (could be a good thing or a bad thing), Apple would have done they same as they prefer their brand name (facetime) over the Skype one.

Why worry, its not going to change much and I don't think the multi platform support will dissapear (apart from the linux version, which is a maybe).
