[PLUG] Older versions of Skype being retired--bad news for linux users

If you have to use Skype, and do so on linux, MS has some bad news for you: it's retiring (i.e. disabling) all versions prior to "Skype for Linux Beta" as of July 1. According to Slashdot posters, "Skype for Linux Beta" is a memory hog, basically unusable on a computer with 2GB of RAM or less (even as the only app running). It's also 64-bit only, marking the end of another function for 32-bit linux.
