Microsoft force an upgrade to the new build of Skype. Changes in this version, they have removed the list of active users in favour of a conversation view, and they have reintroduced EVERY connectivity bug that they had finally resolved from the last version.

Skype needs to die. They should just fucking kill it once and for all - it's a waste of time and effort. They won't revert to the old working code base, and they just can't fucking get it right.

They took a platform that was actually capable and ruined it. I'm not even prepared to poke fun at it, it's just a fucking disgrace.

Mismanaged, useless bullshit.

To anybody involved in the management of the Skype project who might be reading this, just fucking wipe the code base, wipe the backups, topple the servers and call an end to it. YOU HAVE FAILED, COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY. YOU ARE NOT FUCKING FIT TO RUN A FUCKING PROJECT YOU DERELICT CUNTS!!!

EVERY SINGLE MANAGER IN CHARGE OF SKYPE NEEDS TO FUCK OFF AND WORK IN SOME OTHER FIELD - MAYBE A COW FIELD, PICKING UP TURDS.

YOU ARE NOT CUT OUT FOR THIS, BUT AS YOU'RE TOO FUCKING OBTUSE TO DO THE DECENT THING AND QUIT, HERE'S A LITTLE NUGGET OF ADVICE FOR YOU....

TEST IF BEFORE YOU FUCKING RELEASE IT!!!! OK??? GOT IT???

NOW, FUCK OFF AND BOIL YOUR FUCKING HEADS!!!!!

    So you try to video call somebody, and their feed stops being rendered on the main window. Then the small satellite feed disappears, and reappears over and over WHEREVER ON THE SCREEN IT FUCKING LIKES??? WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK???

    Honestly, I want to punch the braindead tosser who thought these design changes made sense.

    Microsoft have done NOTHING to justify the increasing costs of the skype in number, or the fact that the Skype dial out credit EXPIRES!!!

    I'm switching to a VOIP line. It's more expensive, but at least it's not got a dozen new "cool" features.

    This is just the symptom of "brogrammers" fucking shit up.

    Fuck functionality, you know that's not necessary at all!!!

    Programming is turning into Paris Hilton - pretty, but entirely unstable!!!!!

    @2lazy2debug My 22 month old daughter is overtired and is being VERY difficult, I've been fighting with a Linq expression for 6 fucking hours today, and I've been savaged by biting flies that are now causing me a lot of itching.

    Skype has picked the worst time possible to fuck up.....

    You seem astute enough to realise that I'm not in a very good mood..... though I realise the signs are subtle :P

    @lucaspar Yup, had a skype in number for work for a good few years now.

    I've not renewed it....

    Once I can find a decent VOIP provider that I like, I'll switch the number over to them.

    I'll put a cisco IP phone soon my desk, and use a softphone client for when I'm out on site.

    Solved. Yes, it will cost more per month, but thats fine, so long as the money doesn't go to the dev team that have taken Skype and fisted it with a spiky iron glove until it weeps, bleeds and shits itself all at once!

    Absolutely valid rant!
    Fucking Skype developed tumors faster than a 24/7 chainsmoker, since it has been bought by Fuckupsoft.
    Recently, when you delete conversations, they just stay on the side, still fucking visible. And I still cannot find out how to list my contacts, as before, in the left frame.
    With a friend of mine, just with him, I am not able to hear him, at all, nope. We tried everything. In Teamspeak it fucking works.

    How can Microsoft still "develop" such utter hobo crap?!

    I've stopped using it back in 2013 - never looked back.

    @oudalally I sell and install VoIP through RingCentral. They’re the best I’ve ever used. If you go with them, and even if you don’t go through me as one of their partners, can I give you one of my affiliate links for when you sign up?

    Yes, Skype needs to die.

    Since zoom came along (and all other webrtc goodies there are now) there's no reason to use Skype. We stopped supporting it all together.
