So, I have uninstalled both. I do not want a universal platform multifunction chat/video-conference/telephone application. I wanted a chat app. It was a good chat app. They killed my chat app to force me to use a system designed to steal all my contacts and monitor my social media. GO BUCK YOURSELVES MS. I will go with other competing products that will still provide what I actually wanted.
Before I would have thought this was a good thing, but I recently installed the metro version of Skype. Holy crap that thing is a steaming pile. How can they go from a very nice to use windows app to something so unusable?
