I love Skype. I’ve been living on it for years. It’s a good IM client, the VoIP is great and the group video is completely acceptable. My Wayland office has one less device on the desk since I don’t need a regular phone anymore.
Today the wheels came off when I discovered that the Macintosh Skype client hangs up on callers when I reject a call. On Windows, it sends the caller to Voicemail — which is what 95% of people would want. I’m not sure what the other 5% want, but I’m guessing it isn’t a disconnect. And the issue has been around for a year without resolution!
So is this a Microsoft thing? Are they trying to punish me for leaving Windows? I hope not, because I’m going to dump Skype before I leave Mac OSX. They’ll be lonely in the Microsoft Store opening soon in the Natick, MA Mall if this keeps up.
