It could be a good move long term of the Skype functionality and user base can be integrated into existing assets like Microsoft Office to further enhance and solidify the position of some of Microsoft’s offerings.

There’s definitely some uncertainty here, and this further demonstrates why we have a strict entry point we are looking for when acquiring shares in Microsoft.
