I'm not exactly a fan of the new version of skype. If I can figure
out how to invite multiple people to a skype call, that would be
great. However, I can use this new version of skype ok. Granted, I
don't like it as well as 7.4, but I can use it.

I used to use that on days of dial-up and Windows 98.

I used GW Connect for a while, but now, even the patch doesn't seem to work.
I installed it on one of my machines a few nights ago, but it wouldn't even
let me see my contacts. This is truly sad, as it was great software. I
don't know why Microsoft is forcing everyone to use their software,
especially when it's not even fully accessible!
Usually, I use S Portable, which is a portable version of regular Skype 7 if
I remember correctly. Granted, I don't really like the interface there
either, especially as I have to use Task Manager to close the program, but
at least it's better than the one that my friend has on his laptop! I tried
it and got a headache! Here is the link to S Portable.

Personally, I liked MSN/Windows Live Messenger better than all of the above,
as it was simple, fast, and in its earlier days, didn't include all sorts of
unnecessary features! Now, I must find an accessible alternative to Skype.
*sigh*

All the best,
Eleni
