actually, it's much easier to use and is a little better layed out than skype classic.

the problem is, we've had it far too easy for far too long and that isn't necessarily a good thing.

so we don't have keystrokes to quickly read through recent chats, big deal, we can still see them and interact with them. there is a slight issue with sending files with the file chooser dialog, but I'm sure that will be rectified in subsequent releases, but, like sarah said, give it a chance, overall, it really isn't that bad.

This is really good news.

It sounds like they’ve gotten some seriously negative feedback on the new version.

I’ve even heard from people with sight that don’t like it.

Long Live Skype Classic.

I'd have to agree. I've found skype to be just as accessible and just as usable.

the interface took some getting used to, but, once I got the hang of it, I found i liked it.
