"I think it's a great, great deal for Skype. I think it's a great deal for Microsoft," - Bill Gates

Bill Gates – Microsoft founder and former CEO has confirmed that he was one of the key behind Microsoft’s decision to purchase Skype for $8.5 billion. Gates as speaking to the BBC stated that he “I was a strong proponent at the board level for the deal being done”, “I think it’s a great, great deal for Skype. I think it’s a great deal for Microsoft,” he added.

Skype enables its users to contact each other over the internet for free, while charging for calls made to both traditional landline phones and mobiles, which why Google also had been closing in on Skype before Microsoft came in to scoop up the IP-telephony service and its 600 million users.

Share holders and investor criticize and questioned the logic of the deal and suggested the software giant is paying far too much. But for Gates to backup the decision of buying Skype, we hope Microsoft will not fail in future.
