I've never been one to think Microsoft overpaid for Skype. I think it's a tremendous asset, despite a user interface I loathe. Its use is steadily growing, especially internationally. And now it's getting integrated with Microsoft's ecosystem. That means two things: first, a large number Skype users can get slurped into Microsoft services such as SkyDrive, Hotmail, and personalized Bing search; and second, a lot of people using Microsoft services can easily add Skype to the list.
