Microsoft to Acquire Skype

For everyone that follows the show, you know that we use Skype to talk to each other and record the show. An interesting bit of news came out today that Microsoft has entered into an agreement with Skype to acquire Skype for $8.5 billion (USD). Skype is one of the leading Internet communication services providing free and premium accounts to home and business users. As with all acquisitions, things are bound to change somehow. Question is, will we still get the same great service as we do with Skype right now, and what kind of integration they plan to do with their other services, like Outlook and Messenger.
