Skype needs some serious competition, they have a horrible UI on most platforms and Google Voice has cheaper rates, now if only GV worked outside of the US...

Skype actually makes money? I don't know the first thing about tech business but that sounds like a crapload of money for that company.

I was thinking that he didn't advocate the buyout of Skype, and just thought it was only Ballmer. Strange that he did.

Still this doesn't seem like a big deal.  As long as I can still have group calls with my friends while we play video games, I'll be ok with this purchase.
