Skype For Windows 8 Demystified

Jim Courtney loves to use Windows PCs, something I've pretty much moved away from, as I'm at a point where simplicity and form win out over lower cost. I simply don't need the hassles of Micorosft Windows when Apple and Google exist and work better. But, the Windows market is massive, and Skype is taking advantage of it. In his two posts this week about Skype and Windows 8, Jim has disected the two versions of Skype that work with it, and shared his experiences with us.

Honestly, I'm more interested in where Skype is going with Microsoft Lync than I am with Messenger. Skype already has most of those users, so beyond the fact that you can sign in now with either set of credentials to use Skype, the bigger issue, and one of the two driving factors that caused Microsoft to buy Skype in the first place was the fear inside the Lync group of what Skype would do to their growth, so now that they have it, making the two interoperable has to happen soon.
