Skype available as snap

Canonical announced that Skype is available to download as snap for all distros that support it, including Debian:

Let's hope that one day Adobe will release some of it's products for Linux as snaps :)

Lets hope skype releases an appimage version. snapd depends on systemd.

It would be great if Adobe supported Linux; it would attract more users to the platform. I personally, would not use their products.

It is the same argument with AAA Games and Microsoft Office. It would be great for the users, but sadly the chances so slim.
