What do you think about it? Personally, I think Microsoft means death of Skype as it is now... My personal opinion, of course :D

According to CNN, Microsoft plans to improve 5 things on Skype, and one of them is putting it on XBox LIVE. As I recall there is Skype for PSP so as I see it there will be no more of that. If so,  :'(.
