  • Skype also not native app anymore.

    Written in js/electron/node framework. Extremely resource hungry and very slow.

  • Is wxwidgets generally faster than electron?

  • My Lumia is quickly becoming useless

  • @robertGL

    Time to move to Telegram.

  • Skype Classic support will end on November 1st

    It is just small thing here, they play with word "support".

    It is not that it will stop working, no. It is just they want to say they don't like that most people refused to update.

    And btw, new Skype is horrible big monster written by imbeciles.
