As near as I can tell, there aren't too many alternatives to Skype out there at the moment. As for Microsoft purchasing it, the move was meant to give this company a better stake in this highly competitive market (another factor in the purchase is the fact that they stopped supporting then making their MSN Messenger service). I partially agree with MTV that Skype isn't what it used to be (considering how many annoying and bothersome adds that are on the program now), but such is not something that any of us can control.

A factor in how often Skype crashes is a computer's age and processing power, as there are some computers that aren't powerful enough to accommodate Skype's resource needs and are older than a certain age. I am no expert on this however, and don't claim to be.

That makes perfect sense though. Microsoft probably dumped a load features that eat up Ram Space for nothing.

As far as I know, the only Skype add-on in existence is the "click to call" function... I could be wrong about this however.

As far as I guess Microsoft would never have given up on it, they just keep offering more and more, therefore the offer would have always been there!

I gotta agree with you Brandon, purchasing Skype was Microsoft's response to Google introducing its Google Talk program

I've heard that Google Talk is a much better program, but its not as readily available in all areas like Skype is.
