  1. Honestly, I think you guys are overreacting. As someone with Skype version 8, I can tell you it's not that big of a leap. It's more of a Windows Vista to Windows 7 leap not a Windows XP to Windows 8 leap. A lot of the features from classic Skype are still there and there's some good features too like the gallery.

  2. Hello  friend how r u. i wish u people r so shine and fine.

  12. shittiest app ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cant modify anything!!very limited! no history logs!!! cant change anything. just shit.

  13. How do you delete chats?

  14. The new skype sucks, I can't share screens because my friend doesn't have a windows 8 so they don't have the app. I. hate. it.

  15. Skype for Windows 8 is all show. The application is really slow. Account handling is strictly linked to your Microsoft account (I understand the concept, but I don't want to create a whole new computer user only to use a second skype.) and worst is that SCREENSHARE IS NOT SUPPORTED. nor can you multitask during a video chat, which by far is a deal breaker. 

    Fortunately enough, You can install the desktop version by deleting the application and getting the setup straight from the skype website.
