Skype for Linux is lagging behind and falling apart due to Microsoft’s neglect

Microsoft hasn’t updated Skype for Linux since June 2014. In the nearly two years since then, Skype has been falling apart. The Linux client was already behind other platforms, and it’s only fallen further since then. Even the features it does support don’t work reliably. Microsoft still offers Skype for Linux as an officially supported download, but maybe it shouldn’t.
