The longer they continue to "improve" Skype's interface, the worse it gets. In particular, it's getting bigger. It wants more and more space on my screen. All I need is a list of who's online. Nothing more. And now, news is out that they are going to be putting ads on Skype! Ok, that's it, I'm done with the upgrades; it's obviously not going to get better. I went back to version 2.8 for the Mac. Small. Clean. Simple. I like.
