I guess I am not the first that thinks this new UI is BS. The only thing I like is the compact list. Everytime I minimize and click on skype the full interface shows up. I don't like to have the compact list on top all the time but it is really all I want to see when I click on skype. Only and really only if I want to start a chat or a call do I need to see anything but this small list and the list only if I need it. I cannot find any way to 1. make the compact list behave like any other window and loose its always on top behavior. 2. to only only only use the compact list. I never want to see the full interface unless I click on a contact in the list. Does anybody know a solution or is my only option to move back to an older version. I really don't get why interface designers at Skype and ICQ don't get that all you need from an IM/IPcall service is a list of contacts with a small search box. They just keep messing up the interface. At least for IM alternative solutions work much better.
