"Just as exciting are our plans to explore interoperability between Google Talk and Skype, making it easier for our users to chat with one another. This is just another step in our commitment to interoperability via open, industry standards."

well that is certainly not the way skype used to be. If there was interoperability between Skype and Jingle then basically anybody could communicate with Skype users – since Jingle is open. But it's great news. I hope this comes with an integration of video in jingle, then it would be irresistable. Eg. Right now the only gd way to video chat between macs and pcs are through Skype. (iChat-Aim sucks) .. Google would improve that situation a lot.
