They seem to be within striking distance of having some Skype functionality on the Xbox 360. I can see messenger contacts running on Skype and even send them Video Chat requests (via Video Kinect), but they don't seem to receive those.

I'm genuinely curious what purpose the EXE installer serves? Surely if you're got Windows, you've got Windows installer and can run MSI files? What have I missed?

Exe's are for 'consumers' MSI are sortoff meant for GP deployments and automatic installs.
