Re: Long Live Classic Skype

No they have moved on. I think they have also deliberately brought out an end of life patch that actually tells you its at the end of its life. They want it consigned to the bin of time. Having said that, and that its slow and not much runs on it. I was glad i kept a machine around running it when my fancy machine developed a fault. Email works fine and so i could still keep up on here.

I'm very surprised no third party has not hacked xp by now and made it have some get arounds to allow later software to run. It is of course illegal but that never stopped folk before. Note dear reader this is tongue in cheek.

i one time tested skype, but because i cant use and dont love windows
seven, skype 8 does not work for me.
when i tested with windows seven, it was extremely great and realy love it!
but the only issue is not supporting windows xp.
i wish that microsoft readd support for windows xp in to skype eight.
as skype is an important software for me and i realy need it, i
sincerely appreciate your great and joyful news and God bless you!

I do have some sympathy with them, but the fact is that they have been
guilty of assuming they have made it better when in fact they have obviously

not made it bug free as well. There is a long history of Skype cock ups
going back way before Microsoft ever owned it, and they seem unable to break

the cycle of fix one thing and break several other things. We all know the
old Skype code is not as robust or secure as it could be, and hence I do see

that Microsoft want to engineer it better for this reason anyway, but
sadly, its not just blind users who are having issues with the new version

and I really do think they need to stop fiddling and concentrate on fixing
before they retire the old system for good.

Dear friends, in replying a message, I gave you some sort of small info
regarding withdrawing micro soft’s decision of closure of Skype classic on

September first, here is a detailed info!
Earlier this summer, Microsoft announced that they would be ending support
for version 7.0 of classic Skype in September. If that news didn’t sit well

with you, it looks like you will have a bit more time to use the software.
In a forum post where the Skype team was asking for feedback about the
update, the team has updated the post to say that they will not be ending
support Skype 7 and will extend the deadline. The company did not provide a

new timeline for the end of life of the product but did say that they will
update the post again with more information in the future.
The full post can be read below:

The team says that this change is based on customer feedback but is
ambiguous about the future of the platform. This is an awkward backward step

for the Skype team as they previously said that Skype 8 had all the
functionality that users needed but clearly that is not the case.
For the past couple of weeks, Microsoft has been aggressively pushing users

to upgrade from version 7 to 8 but it’s clear that this update process has
been far from painless.
I have reached out to Microsoft about this change to see if they will
provide any additional information about when this product will be retired.
For now, if you are using the classic version of Skype, you will be able to

do so for the foreseeable future. That being said, at some point you will
have to migrate to a newer version of the software.
