Even though there are many new versions of skype, a large amount of people are still using and searching for Skype 3.8. I think that this is basically because of the new interface that is introduced to us in skype 4 and newer versions. Many people didn’t like the drastic change – why change something that isn’t broken, right :)?
This is why I introduce to your attention the 3.8 version, that can’t be downloaded from skype.com. The supported operating systems are Windows 2000/XP/Vista and unofficially Windows 7. If you are looking for a different version of skype and you have stumbled upon this post by accident, please visit our category page Download Skype and choose another version.
If you are looking for an old version of skype that runs on Windows 7, then this version should do the trick. Just ignore the message telling you that the program is not compatible with Windows 7 and check on the tick saying do not show this message again (or something like that). If you have any problems, which you shouldn’t, try using the compatibility mode of Windows 7, so it simulates Windows XP when you start skype 3.8. If you still have problems you can also try using Skype 3.6. And below you will find a few screenshots of the program, as well as some of the new stuff in this version.
What is new in Skype 3.8?
