It’s official Microsoft bought Skype for 8.5 billion USD
Hopefully Skype will be integrated into the live services and be a part of windows phone 7. This goes into a direction where google failed years ago with their wave project.
Good luck MS. It would be awesome to have your skydrive combined with your skype account to share documents, use office live and you could even do it from your phone. As you wouldn’t need to really transfer the data, because everything would just be between skydrives, it should be really fast. MS could add some hosted exchange and/or sharepoint functionality and it gets really interesting.
At least for non-critical documents and stuff you can count me in to try it, so hurry up.
