    If done right I think it could be a great deal, even if they over-paid initially.

    Assuming regulators don’t cry foul, sticking BING in front of 600 million Skype users is a no-brainer and will probably be the first thing they focus on. Integrating it with Windows phone, X-Box, and their other consumer products could be lucrative. Competition with WebEx by tying it with Office products will be big money.

    I guess “if done right” is the biggest question with MS.
