+ - Microsoft agrees to buy Skype for 8.5 Billion (US)->

Submitted by KBentley57
KBentley57 writes: While there have been talks of both Google and Facebook entering into some sort of deal with Skype, it appears that Microsoft has swooped in and bought them before either of the two had a chance. BBC News reports that "Microsoft's aim in buying Skype is to improve its video conferencing services". There was no mention of continued compatibility between other operating systems in the article.
