Same here, but don't understand why everything has adapt to the Metro style theme, which is aimed at tablets.

Is anyone taking into consideration that most desktop users are not upgrading to Windows 8?

I haven't updated Skype since MS acquired it. It isn't necessary to Metro-cise it, there isn't much of an interface. I mean.... I full screen the video and look at that. If it's a voice call, the window is minimized. So wats up wit dat?

Ohhhhh, that consistent look and feel of all applications - that's sooo 1990s

If you check the beta version they have, they did "metro-cize" it in a way--they made everything look flat. No shades nor shines. Other than that, it is essentially the same interface, just a visual change.
