Skype for Linux Redesign Is Ugly but Functional

The Skype for Linux application window is bordered in dull gray, and the window fields are washed-out white. The design lacks any appeal. Fortunately, the same can not be said about the performance. Open source purists might not want to sully their systems with a proprietary application, even though it is free. For others, this refresh is worth the upgrade or an initial exploration.
