    What was Microsoft thinking when they built this shit?

    Skype on Windows 8.1 is downright creepy. It wants all my account details, it will NOT let me log out of it! "We are always on so you don't miss a call." FUCK YOU SKYPE. I fucking own this PC and I want you on and off whenever I want you on and off. Piece of shit software.

    And it requests access to my other windows account whenever I try to use it and it requests passwords randomly as if accessing some shit I didn't tell it to access.

    Fuck skype and windows 8 man, Windows 8.1 is totally fucked up, where's that simple Windows screen that simply used to work? I threw money out with this crap, I'm going back to Windows ex pee.

    I am on windows 8.0 and I don't have that issue. V 6.10.0.104 with an update I have been avoiding for a week since i just did one. I can log in and out as I please although right click and close on the taskbar does nothing. I dislike the feed thing on login too. It doesn't ask me for random passwords. Just either my microsoft messenger account or my skype id.

    I found a download site with an old version of skype and I downloaded that instead now I have sky pee on a window of its own, not full screen and trying to access every single account of mine.

    HerpDerpDerp, I think you downloaded the older version. Watch out if you use the windows 8 one.

    They should make "Microsoft Software Engineer Getting Fucked in the Ass with a Baseball Bat, While the Straight Guy Beats His Head with a Tire Iron" Porn. I'll be the straight guy.

    Windows 7 works fine with Skype, however I did not upgrade to W8 yet and not really planning to for a while.

    Windows 8 sucks ass. Just bought a new laptop the other day and trying to get used to it. All of the default settings suck.

    @microsoft - Why, when you're already struggling for relevance and facing real market share threats, would you go about pissing off users?

    Sounds much like oDesk's response to the growing threat of the now-giant freelancer - 'lets just be really annoying to our users and make this death as fast as possible'...

    Yeah and you need your fucking live mail id in order to login. That's shit... I downloaded the standalone version of skype ( skype for desktop most probably) and it runs perfect on both my win 8 machines.

    Yeah and I threw a bunch of money into this new version, because I was still on XP. What the hell did I do??! I regret every dime I spent on this new POS Windows version.

    I'm seriously thinking of going all Linux now, but ...photoshop....
