Same problem for me since I moved to Windows 8 from Windows 7.

 

What is going on here? Windows 7 everything worked fine. Windows 8, I randomly show up on-line, messages come through hours later, etc. The interface is an abomination like someone from UI-101 designed it. This product has seriously regressed. Just give us the same UI and functionality in Windows 8 that was in Windows 7 and make your CUSTOMERS happy Skype!

You can install the "normal" desktop version using the msi-installer for the currently latest Skype 6.11.0.102 version.
