    Microsoft buying SKYPE

    Nah, should be a good fit. Half the time I get bad service and every other upgrade fails and have to roll back.

    I wouldn't worry. It's such an obvious app that if they muck with it, another will take its place...

    I use SKYPE for my long distance and haven't had a problem with it but if Microsoft buys it then it will more than likely be time to move on. They seem to screw up what ever they touch.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    MS has been dumb enough to earn countless billions of dollars from us who buy their stuff and use their advertising.
    I see this as just another passage in the growth and development of the Internet.
