I also call it BLOATware (also NSA-ware)

Of course...it can be resized, repositioned, or removed entirely from the home screen. We cannot expect complete or correct information from this writer.
To call it bloatware reveals a stunning lack of intelligence. I am surprised you can find the power button to your device.

Skype is awesome IM tool, let's hope that Microsoft won't screw it up.

I can't see how Microsoft could mess up Skype.
Besides, haven't they owned it since like 2011?

There are many important things on Windows 8 that Microsoft could add or fix.
This is not one of them. This is the equivalent of Apple including a compass with the iphone 3GS.

That's your own personal opinion. Integrating Skype, and among many other great improvements in W8, is welcome news. I hope it also gets integrated in WP8.1!
