Installing Skype 5
Authored by: capacity on Jan 28, '11 08:12:43AM
I found no problems dragging Skype.app on the mounted dmg onto the Applications alias included on the dmg. Some info on what's wrong with using the alias would have made this hint worthwhile, but as a one-off experience someone had, this is not a hint worth reading.

Now, as for problems that I have with Skype's interface change, that's another issue. Not to mention that opening Skype switches to the discrete NVidia GPU in my mid-2010 15" MBP regardless of whether I'm using video (meaning I cannot leave Skype open in the background without cutting my battery time in half), and there's no way to turn video off as there was in previous versions of Skype (which remedied the GPU switch). Time to switch back to 2.8.
