Skype sucks

Skype always sucked but what the hell is this new update? I was surprised when I switched from msn and found skype to be worse in a number of ways. And now they managed to make it even worse? This has to be intentional!

Just googled out of curiosity and people are loving it too.

I used to love Skype back when the norm was MSN. The thing is, what determines which messenger you will use is the amount of contacts you can have there.

This new update looks retarded though and updates that take away functions simply piss me off, especially if they are auto-forced updates. I think people who push such updates should be fired, effective immediately without any compensation. They should be put on the street without any references. That's how violated I feel when they take away from apps I use.

If you search for Skype Classic, you can find the previous version. Uninstall the latest version (8.x) and install the Classic version 7.x. Worked for me.

Unless they block the Classic version, I will not move on to this new version; it's a horrific next installment, almost as bad as Heroes 7.

Guys, what did you expect, did Microsoft ever do something good for a version 8 of a software? They usually stop doing decent things after a seventh installment.

But I do, firing such morons will work wonders on the progression of the company.

I'm with artu

Thanks maurice, I'm very glad to have removed this piece of crap 'upgrade' from my system.

And sorry Zeno, I have not updated to the new force powers. It requires more suspension of disbelief than I can muster for the time being.

Skype rating sharply drops

Good job. And following the fallout, the team came out to say that we will build the future together. These guys..
