Check out this website I found at developer.skype.com
I don’t love it, nor like using it (or better, having it running on my machine “eating” my cpu power and my connection bandwidth) … but still:
- it works
- file transfers are FAST
- it’s free (as in beer, at least! )
So, if you had the 2.7 release try the new 2.8 one, it’s better than the actual stable Windows counterpart !!!
