‘Stopped escalator stepping’ effect

Fig 1 Here it is (feedback)

People are used to UI of old version of Skype.
If you could make it a DEFAULT UI in a new version with a simple option to try new UI.
It is too late to suggest and who will listen anyway…
YahooMail does that – ‘try our new’, ‘downgrade to our old’. I use old one as I did not like new.
Any time I will change my mind – it is one click away.
Many people I know downgraded almost same day as look of new Skype is unusual.
You feel the same as when you stepped on a stopped escalator but feeling is not leaving you after ‘a couple of steps’ and you jump out.
