Re: Microsoft is Killing Skype Classic on September 1 -

The article in question provided many details. Windows 10 was not
mentioned exclusively either. They are no longer supporting Skype 7,
what they call Classic Skype and will be forcing people to upgrade to
the modern version. Whether there is a way to avoid the updates and
whether Classic will still work I don't know. S Portable may be an
option, but even then, I usually have to tell it not to update.

this is because here in my area some of the folks and businesses uses
Skype for their jobs, and useful to consider as well. Better to provide

Windows 10 only or to other platform?

I don't pay for the home wifi, and other things, which are not mine,
are connected to it. Plus, my parents know very little about
computers, so I'm not going to play with their modem.

Hi Sean,

I like Chrome, so therefore, I like hangouts. I'd rather have Chrome

I am not exactly happy with leaving skype, since skype has been something
have had to use on and off, however while there was a potential time that
may have had to use skype, fact is there for business it never happened

Hangouts needs chrome, I would really like a stand alone client if I
have that.

I have not decided but I may try to learn the new skype, however a lot
family use whats app on a newer mobile device and there is also skype
others and who knows.

I like my pc though.

interesting to see what UI interface changes occur, particularly with
