Fix Outlook Integration
In Skype 7, in the desktop Outlook application you could call a contact simply by using the Outlook "Call" feature. In Skype 8 this TAPI feature was broken, and calling a contact from Outlook brings up the modem dialer instead (and I don;t have a modem or analog phone line).
I won't upgrade until the Outlook integration is restored and I can call my contacts through Skype from within Outlook. Please do not suggest importing my contacts into Skype; I have 12,000 and wish to keep them separate.

This is so terrible and so broken and I've been waiting for it to be fixed for such a long time that I am on the verge of canceling Skype and trying something new.
Great idea! :)
