Pros: Has been the "default" VOIP for Windows platform for ever and performs well. Can import contacts from Yahoo, Hotmail, Facebook... easy to use...
Cons: Updated Skype to Windows Desktop version 22.214.171.124 and what a slow-poke this is.... it takes for ever to load and close. What have they done to Skype??? The previous version 6.14.104 was doing just fine, fast loading and closing and not even a hiccup what so ever. They really messed up this time. They should have left it alone. This new so called Desktop Version is probably written to enhance it's operation with Windows 8 even though it's for windows 7 also. They forgot the Wins 7 crowd which are more than Wins 8 and just refined Skype for Wins 8. If I could get back the old Version 6.14.104 I would get rid of this Desktop Version. Don't like it at all. It's just to SLOW... HEY SKYPE WHAT HAVE YOU DONE ????
Other Thoughts: Skype should allow for PC Wins 7 users to keep older versions
