Re: Phasing out of 7

On the Daily Fibre this morning on Mushroom fm, Jonathan Mozen also said Microsoft have been made aware of a big security issue in all versions of Skype and that yet another re write needs to be done to fix it.
Also he pointed that the new code even now has access issues and questioned what it was that the Skype team were doing that persistently left it with access issues compared with the old version and indeed other Microsoft products.
I suspect somebody in Microsoft is pulling their hair out. Not only do they have inaccessible software again but now a big security hole.
What else is there with as much spread as Skype has. Is it that they will forcibly top it or just that you wont be able to install old versions in 10 any more?
I suspect most of this not able to run stuff is probably design rather than need driven. I'm able to use Outlook Express on windows 7 because Microsoft could not be bothered to make an accessible email and news client with message rules.

Subject: [nvda] Phasing out of 7


The below page from Doug lee explains the phasing out of Skype 7 in
favor of Skype 8 or the Universal App on windows 10. I have no idea what
you folks on XP will do, but I stopped using Skype in favor of team talk
anyway.
