that's not my point at all. in fact, you know what? forget it.
I'm done. Time and Time again, people have given you solutions
and whatnot and other feedback to help you improve your efficiency
with Skype, and you still complain that it is worse than what you
had. build a bridge, get over it, The new Skype is here to stay,
and no amount of belly aching on your part nor anybody else's will
extend the life of Skype Classic. Microsoft have put it to bed,
and rightly so. We, whether you like to admit it or not, are a
minority, and we do not affect a major corperation's bottom line
as much as we'd all wish we could, save for those to whom products
are specifically designed and marketed towards us.
Whenever I see an email from you regarding Skype, it is a never
ending litany of charges against it's ease of use, that it's worse
than what you had, it's less accessible, it's less efficient, it's
this, it's that, or it's the other.
That is why I say you should expend that energy you put in to
thinking up and cmposing that litany of charges, in to learning
Skype or whatever varients thereof, and actually be constructive
and positive, instead of negative and disruptive.
We've heard every single complaint you've raised before, and
reitterating them here, is not going to change what currently is.
If you feel that strongly about it, contact the MS Disability
Access Desk and kindly present them with your arguments.

"Octavien, if you
put as much energy in to learning the new skype as you do
complaining about it, you'd have nothing to complain
I already told you that this is not true.
I put a lot of efforts in learning to use Windows 7, and I use
it every day in the last years, but I still consider it worse
and less accessible than Windows XP.
After I will learn to use Skype 8 I will
be able to use it very well, but that "very well" would still
be worse than using Skype 7 for me.
Don't think that all the people use the
applications the same way you use them.

so do I, on both platforms, windows and mac. IOS and android,
well, that's a whole other ballgame, but, it's certainly
better than it ever was.
Octavien, if you put as much energy in to learning the new
skype as you do complaining about it, you'd have nothing to

I don't mind the web inerface, in fact, I find myself
navigating a lot faster in the web interface than the
older interface but thats just me.

Any improvement is
good, but these are small improvements while
bigger issues will never be solved.
The biggest issue:
Skype 8 uses a web interface.
This issue might be
worked around if the scripts will turn the virtual
buffer off automaticly and it will use only the PC
cursor, and of course, if this way Skype will be
fully accessible this way.
The best news is that
for the moment Skype 7 still works. Too bad that
it will probably stop working soon.
