VoIP service continues coping with backlash
A version of Skype compatible with OS X Leopard is in development, a company spokesperson now says. "We have a Skype version for Mac OS X 10.5 users which will soon be available for download," the person states. The release will not however be compatible with anything older, such as OS X Tiger.
Skype ran into trouble this week when it dropped support for Leopard without warning. Although very few people are still using the OS, Skype was previously functional on it. And in some cases, users' Macs may not meet the requirements of more recent OS X releases like Mavericks or even Snow Leopard.
