So just two weeks have been passed in the grand acquisition of Microsoft and Skype and the application is experiencing a disastrous crash. The desktop client for Skype is suddenly down and so is their website.
This just happened with a colleague of mine at office when he was not even using the application and he received an error report saying ‘Skype has crashed down’ and he was kicked out of his account. Then it start happening with multiple people. When the site was checked it displayed it is down.
So the merger with Microsoft is showing up the dark side, no doubt Windows is been labeled as house of viruses, and their latest accomplishment is soon to be getting the same title. I am afraid because I don’t want my favorite communication application to just go down every other day especially without any notification of invalid activity.
This act will give much negative impact to Microsoft, because all the Skype fans have started pointing Microsoft over this failure cause. You can check the live tweets by different people around the globe experiencing Skype crash, just Google Skype and you will see the real-time responses.
Out of all these sudden tweets Skype just responded they are looking into the matter and will be back shortly. I wonder when I will be able to connect back in.
Update: Here is fix for Skype.
