Ugh... Just when I got almost everyone used to saying and using Lyn correctly. Now a simple Icon change will send half of them back to the "How do I share my screen?" era....

So Microsoft Lync is the best communication platform on the market at this time. I think this is yet another MAJOR mistake from Microsoft in trying to make the Skype brand seem bigger.

The change in the UI is as stupid as the decision to re brand and excellent product. I hope before this become reality someone at Microsoft takes their heads out the *$$ and reverts this decision.
