I still say, so what about Skype Downloads

Skibare doesn’t think I see the growth potential of Skype with a million downloads a day. On the contrary, I do. However, the number of downloads alone is irrelevant. What I don’t see (and what Skype doesn’t tell us) is the conversion rate, meaning the number of those downloads that actually turn into new, regular users of Skype.

I’ve downloaded Skype a grand total of three times: once for my PC and twice for my Dell Axim. I have used Skype a grand total of three times, and all for Skype out minutes for research purposes for Voxilla. I would hardly consider myself a regular user of Skype. When they get a standalone ATA for use with Skype, I might consider using it.
