I won't see ads
Ads will be blocked, because;
1) Fuck you I pay for the service... I shouldn't be bombed with ads
2) Ad's are a security risk, as they usually come from dodgy 3rd party ad servers
I really hope skype doesn't jump the shark. I really enjoy being able to make secure, free calls to friends around the world.
I find people bitching about skype call quality usually have a 3rd rate ISP on one end of the call.
I have been using it for years, and I have never had an issue talking to friends. Calls have always been clear and pretty stable.
I guess people are blaming skype in a lot of cases where it is more the ISP to blame.
The node SNAFU was entirely their fault, but given that was the first major outage in a few years, that was a pretty good effort.
So bollocks to advertising! Keep making a product I am happy to use, which does what I want it to, and doesn't contain ads.
I can hear the linux fanboys on various forums crying about the lack of a skype client, and they have been for ages.
It's linux desktop. No one cares about you.
You are a tiny percentage of the market, and not worth the effort.
Now go back to your basement, and play with your kernels.
