Whenever I used Skype as an IM client I found it pretty unreliable. I hope Microsoft put some funds into improving it. Skype was definitely a better VOIP client but I feel MSN was a better IM client.

My guess would be that they'll either put skype into it in place of MSN, or simply remove MSN from it. I can't see them retiring them all.
