by Volker Weber

Unfortunately, Skype Lite - a version of Skype for your mobile phone - and Skype for Windows Mobile are no longer available for download from our site.

I do find it a bit perplexing when a company (and Skype is just one among legion) uses the word 'unfortunately', as though they had no choice in the matter of their corporate decisions.

The only logical way to read that kind of message, is 'the company board have made this decision; we who put this web page together, don't agree with them'.

Is that how we are supposed to read this?

Hm, I read this slightly different. Have you never had to take decision (not because some external entity forced you directly but because it was the only option that made sense, e.g. economically), but still be sorry about the decision you had to take?

@Ragnar: of course! But I would have put a more positive complexion on the decision - and I note in any case, that the Skype page in question has changed since I first looked at it, and now explains the decision properly....
