Static binaries for Skype 4.1?

[ Edited ]

Hi, where are thwe static binaries for Skype 4.1? Have always been installing the static binaries for Linux since they were released.

 

Or rather, how long do we have to wait for a static binary of Skype 4.1, if at all? Static binaries are extremely important for users like me who are not using Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora or OpenSUSE.

 

Please bring back the static binaries, thanks.

Static binary support has been removed and won't come back, sorry.

Do you want us to change OS or to move to Google talk?

To support that last statement: Debian 7.0 (multiarch) does not work on amd64.

I think this is a bad idea. I'm using RHEL 6.3 in my office. I was using the static binary in order to not muck around with the system and shared libraries.

Isn't also easier for you to release only the dynamic and static binaries, and let the community to package them instead of supporting five distributions?

The static binaries work perfectly on any system. Can you please justify the choice of not provide them?

You're loosing ground here...
