@Izaq Estonians were shareholders of the company and they made over 100 million euros in profit when Skype was sold to eBay in 2005. They were not just hired coders, they were part owners of the company. Moreover, they were the ones to come up with the peer-to-peer technology, the audio and video codecs - all of the things that make Skype a high quality, bug-free and easy-to-use software.

This is the last time I will say it. Get an adblocker and specify the toolbar as an ad.

what a miserable attempt. Facts are twisted and overlooked to come up with a impressing story.

From wikipedia.org:
"Skype was founded in 2003 by the Swedish entrepreneur Niklas Zennström and Dane Janus Friis.[16] The Skype software was developed by Estonian developers Ahti Heinla, Priit Kasesalu and Jaan Tallinn, the same individuals who together with Niklas and Janus were also originally behind the peer-to-peer file sharing software Kazaa.[17]"

So a Dane and a Swede came up with the idea and had some estonians program it. So it's "Estonian". If the country in which it has been coded dictates where the software was "invented", then much of the worlds software was "invented" in India. Right...

I live in Estonia.

If I find who made this video, I'm going to kick his ass, or if he is big, I'll throw in his windows...

Why yes I learned of Estonia in geography.

Why yes I also watched Axis Powers: Hetalia, which is where I learned most of this prior to watching the video.

All this stupid crap started when you put this damn toolbar in. Get rid of it, and fix some of the problems it's caused.

Hmm, maybe I should move to Estonia then. They also have hits of ecstasy for like 3 Euro, so that helps too I guess.

Been there. This really surprises me since many people on the outskirts of Tallin don't have plumbing.

I've heard of it. Even before I watched Axis Powers: Hetalia. Hetalia helped, though.

As for their internet... When the land mass is as small as Estonia's, and the population is only around 1.3 million, it does tend to be easier to connect people. A single large WiMAX network could cover the entire country...

IAB: You've messed up something ELSE now. I can't select and delete sections of what I type anymore. All this stupid crap started when you put this damn toolbar in. Get rid of it, and fix some of the problems it's caused.

I know of estonia because this girl on our swim team was born there and was fast enough to go to the olympics for the estonian team.
