Re: DO NOT FORCE US ONTO THE NEW VERSION!

And, who else are we supposed to trust, eh? Apple?? The bottom line is, they should not be fucking with our communication history and everything that we have shared over the years and, yes, a lot of people DO depend on it, personally, but also professionally. Some people have to use it, depending on where they work! It's messing with a lot of us. Trust? Maybe it's not so much trust, but all of us re-evaluating what we are depending on, daily, tech wise. Honestly, I never thought they would lose *this* much common sense, though. Time to re-evaluate, as most of these companies are not acting as a public utility, anymore. That's for sure!

DO NOT FORCE US ONTO THE NEW VERSION!

We have really hoped that Microsoft would listen to their loyal users! This is affecting so many people, personally and professionally! The fact that they are not planning on retaining chat history is, not just stressful, but traumatizing for some, who may have lost loved ones and their communications with them, on Skype. That is but one example. We need our voices to be heard!

The Skype users are being treated so poorly. We have spoken up, have wanted our voices heard and, instead, this is what we get! Nevertheless, may we keep speaking up on this matter! I know people who will *really* suffer because of this, especially due to most of our history being gone!!

Has anyone seen the petition pages to keep Classic Skype, alive? Nisse has over 1,000 signatures and rising. We can only hope that Microsoft *will* listen, when it comes to this. It would be a great way to build back some much needed trust with their user base. Our voices *have* been loud, but it looks like we need to be louder than ever before!

Re: Why?? Any Solid Reason

Probably because they want to push us to other platforms, or possibly to Apple.
