Is The New Skype 6.0 Buggy?

Image representing Skype as depicted in CrunchBaseImage via CrunchBase

Are you seeing strangeness since Skype updated it's client to 6.0 on the Mac OS?

Are you seeing messages appear out of order time wise?

Are you finding messages are going through from iPad but showing as pending?

Are your calls via Skype Out not presenting your Skype In Number or designated Caller ID?

Are you seeing the set up time for calls to be taking a lot longer?

I am, and from what I can sense, I'm not alone. It seems as Skype has revamped its' architecture to co-exist with Microsoft Messenger, and eventually Microsoft Lync, that a lot of changes have been made, and for those of us who have been using Skype for a very, very, very long time, these changes are not for the better.

Oh, where are you now GizmoProject. It just worked. It was standards based and it didn't worry about corporate mandates. Oh, Google owns it, closed it and gutted it for pieces and parts. But seriously, the world is ready for something that takes all that was great about Skype and deliveres it today, in a WebRTC way. What company is ready to step up?
