The Ultra Uber Guru Skype Petition, If you want performance instead of "more" features sign now

Many of my friends would rather talk via Skype rather than Teamspeak or Ventrillo because it's more convenient and... is just better. But 2 things make Skype bad... 2 of which the guys at Skype consider to be not that big of a problem. Well, I have lots of friends who disagree, and many more who would like to speak up but are shy.



1. CPU lag. Skype inherently uses a lot of CPU just for talking. I should know, it crashes my computer more than any other program. (I probably have a defective motherboard or something). Skype causes video games to drop in framerate by about 20 or 25 FPS while talking to friends on Skype. The frame drop is apparent by all of my friends on Skype because they all complain of FRAME RAPE.



2. It pulls you out of all fullscreen apps (especially video games) when you receive an incoming call from a friend or some nobody. Who decided this was the way Skype should work? How would you like it if you were playing a game and were about to annihilate somebody, but NO. Skype auto minimizes your game, thus annihilating your chances of survival in that game. This is not a feature, it is an ANNOYANCE.



Skype should detect fullscreen apps and go into a hibernation mode, which basically drastically uses less CPU, but still manages to let you talk to your friends. This would make it ideal for small groups of friends to play amongst each other in video games without the threat of CPU lag or AUTO MINIMIZES. (Don't be like AIM and kick to the desktop. That's not cool!)



So, if you think Skype should fix these 2 things, then sign this petition! This is not a small issue, it's a HUGE issue... and we need to show these Skype guys that we mean business.
