The question desktop users should be asking is not, "Will my skype work after Decemeber 2013"? BUT "Is my SKYPE secure after December 2013"?


This has nothing to do with Skype security or Skype itself working after December.  This is about Microsoft removing programatic access to Skype, which will break all kinds of headsets, hardware, and 3rd party software that interacts with Skype. It will effectively end 3rd party application and hardware development for the Skype.

Hi,

 

The give feedback option appears 7 days after you first installed the new version. I am currently working to update the FAQ on this.

Hi Allen,

 

Actually, to get an accurate tally from ALL the angry or annoyed Skype users in one place, the Popup warning message about killing the Desktop DPI should have an integrated user feedback link.

 

There's only a relatively small percentage of users who will even see this forum link; or, even know there is a feedback option that would actually help.  I'm sure if there was a way to see how many people actually need the desklop API, they wouldn't know killing the Desktop API is way, WAY too premature. 

 

Everyone I know still uses Win7; and, prefers the desktop-only model.

 

In fact, my home entertainment/Media Center PC at home has a 55" screen (which get's incoming Skype caller/picture ID when watching TV/movies (thanks to the desktop API)); and, would never want to downgrade to a tiny mobile plaform.

I depend on external applications like Pamela to record Skype Group Video calls. This was one of the wonders of Skype that this could be done and now you are removing this ability?

I can't understand your motovation other than to phase out Skype usability on Desktops in

favour of mobile devices.  I can only asume that there is a hidden profit motive here although you will lose many thousands of Desktop users. Hopefully, someone else will offer an alternative Skype like application to fill the immense gap you will be leaving in the market and challenge your monopoly.

So... you'll be out of a job then, right, since there won't be any developers to support?

Microsoft continues to shoot themselves in the foot.  Will they ever learn?  They have discontinued technet subscriptions leaving resellers and tech's out in the cold.  Now they change skype so millions of devices will no longer work.  Who will possibly trust them after this?  What developer's will trust them?  What resellers?  Microsoft needs to wake up and start treating their customers as customers or they will go the route of Blackberry very soon. I'm looking into other services.
