As long as Skype sucks, it’s pretty clear to everyone that Microsoft is in no danger of pioneering any revolutionary new UI paradigms when you have yet to master getting any of the old ones right yet.
.....
Basic video conferencing with a little audio and a dumb camera are barely functional in the year 2017 and the clowns responsible for it are getting wall-to-wall press coverage about the fairy-tale technology they are contriving to solve tiny irrelevant problems, INSTEAD of making their own multi-billion dollar telecommunications platform work reliably so that I can ACTUALLY stay in my own home instead of having to constantly spend thousands of dollars traveling on businesses.
.....
What if - you just made video conferencing so reliable that you put hotels, rental cars and the airlines completely out of business?

To be fair, telecommuting is getting better over time. Mostly because internet channels are getting faster and more reliable.
I do not need video, but I need a screen sharing.
Unfortunately Skype misbehaves when there are multiple people joining conference: screensharing may unexpectedly stop, participants may drop or simply do not hear each other...
