    The more interesting part of this (for me) is that in order to properly support Skype (without getting into “trouble”) they didn’t bake Skype into the OS (as people kept – wrongly – suggesting they should) but instead they built APIs to support VoIP applications and baked those in.
    Of course this also means that they can properly support Lync (so an in house win) but it should also mean that other VoIP “clients” appear (I would hope for a decent generic SIP client though I suspect I’m not going to see something that supports IAX – which I’d prefer – any time soon)
