I must be Skype’s nth millionth user! Just started using it a few days ago. And it is quite a utility tool – primarily its IM, file transfer and group interaction capabilities.
I always thought of Skype for the VoIP calls, and since my international calls were not that many, I didn’t bother much about it. When some of the things I was doing necessitated interaction that needed rapid responses and email/sms/calls weren’t the best option, I started using Skype. And was duly impressed by its utility.
Microsoft, having paid $8.5 billion for it, now needs to figure out how to make money from me!
