I wonder how long it will be before a "Critical Security Issue" is worked into the code or MSFT screws it up in some other way.

|Microsoft and Skype will remain focused on their shared goal of connecting all people across all devices |
I wish a search company would focus on pure, unadulterated search results for a change. The big 3 are flipping out (Google's gone Panda, Bings gone connection happy and yahoo can't flip their own light out fast enough) so there's an opening for a revolution here, I hope.
I do like the skype purchase however, I hope it becomes a standard feature in future operating systems.

Everyone has forgotten NetMeeting. It was bundled with IE 3 or 4. It changed my world back in the 1990s. I stopped paying for a long distance phone package and used my ISDN connection to chat with people across the globe.
Skype could do something similar in the right hands...

I used and liked NetMeeting. Type in the IP you want to talk to and off you go. I imagine routers made this ease a little more difficult. I wouldn't have even remembered NetMeeting if you hadn't mentioned it.

It didn't take long for Microsoft to remove the Google toolbar from skype. 1 day!

Skype worked well for me for many years. ( apart from the SMS service where they charge 100% of the time and deliver 0 % of the time. That's a fact for me, support blames the carrier although I try 3 different ones.)
Now with the new update the video freezes 90% time when I start it go figure?

Big bet Microsoft, I am sure there are big plans in the pipeline.
I had totally forgot about net meeting how time moves on.

Oh man, i hope Microsoft implements Skype on windows phone asap.. i'd love to use my Skype# for SMS vs the ripoff that is the 35.00 a month "family plan"..
I just hope they bring some stability to the windows product now. Skype has been invasive with their installs later, not a great way to deliver a good customer experience.

You have to wonder if this investment will ever pay off. MS has lots of cash though.
