Ballmer must be delusional.

Just as long as my daughter can still play with her grandparents an ocean away.

If Kinect hasn’t taken the world by storm (it is the fastest and most selling device of all time!), then I can’t guess what else will.
Poor article written with no insight.

Skype as part of the office suite could do a lot for remote working. Skype being taken seriously for business could be a very big deal. Companies might run skype servers than federate (like Outlook/Exchange federated with standard email).

Skype as a free stand-alone app will not survive.
