I see no problem with ads on Skype. I make liberal use of the service. No doubt it languished too long in relative neglect during it's sojourn at eBay. That was a poor fit.
IMO, Skype has legs for the long haul, and monetizing it beyond phone charges makes a lot of sense. And, I wouldn't rule out an IPO.
