i think the whole having to pay to share desktops changed shortly before MS bought skype though
i know it's been like that for quite awhile now
Well, I was still able to share screens without paying in April of 2012...

any of you guys having issues with skype where the messages get delayed? like i'd be talking to my friend and i wouldn't get her message for minutes, sometimes hours later. it's really annoying.
That happens a lot.
Skype is totally unreliable for text messaging, all it's got is syncing messages between devices and computers.
That's the only thing that's cool in my eyes. Apart from that I actually hate messaging in Skype.
It's even more annoying considering that messages get pushed to your device even though you're actively chatting on your computer so it goes "bing!!" and "brrr" all the time... Oh the joy...
It's even more annoying when your own messages get pushed in that way to your phone. And the push notification will say it's from the other person you're chatting with.
Open the app and you see the convo totally intact.
I'm telling you, Skype is so awful for text based conversations it's not even funny.
And it lacks so many features I cannot start to comprehend why Microsoft is rushing the merging so much... Oh yeah, they don't care about users who need fine control anymore on a broad scale...
