Microsoft is cancer. Are they ever going to fix their shitty program?

When will Microshit stop toying with us?
You forgot how piss-poor Skype's performance is, how disk usage surges when you launch it, how slow it is to load past convos from disk, how much it lacks in customisation options and so on.
I realise that there might be some people who are shilling some skype competitor apps here, but skype still sucks.
what makes it a gimmick?
looks like shit isn't a valid argument. it's a program for communicating with other people, not a fashion accessory. anyway skype has built in ads and nothing is uglier than that.
Skype ads have literally never been a problem for me, they are not in inconvinent places and don't play sound.
Also, it most definitely does matter. Having to click through a shitty UI is almost the most painful thing to deal with whilst using a computer.
it's shit but in the country where I am from, unfortunately, if you need to have a meeting, literally everyone is guaranteed to have Skype so it becomes the goto.
Anything else and you always end up with like 30% at least having to create accounts, 2 people struggle to download whatever application. They have no clue how to use said new application. It's an endless hassle, so we just leave it and use Skype.
But fuck Skype.
I bet you any money that they are keeping the entire fucked up core of Skype in there and literally just creating a new GUI for it.
Probably leaving all the code of the previous GUI in there as well

I don't know man edge and the new win 10 apps have pretty nice UI and most of all limited bloat so here's hoping.
One thing is some functionality is gone like image thumbs in the message app so that could point to new code.
