bootnote: but a trip to Skypes front page reveals a nice big Beta download notice/link... Maybe "check for updates" should have offered "there is a beta available, would you like to learn more" ?

I haven't downloaded Skype 2.5 yet, but just bought another SkypeIn number, this time in Melbourne (Australia).
