Earlier Skype Versions - Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger)

How can I get Skype for a Mac running Tiger?  I have an old laptop and I don't want to upgrade to 10.5, but I don't want to run Skype 2.8.

Scroll to the bottom of this forum page.  Click on Mac under Get Skype.  Scroll to the bottom of the resulting page and click on the link to download v2.8.

Same here, tried to upgrade, didn't work, so went back to the old one, only to find that now it won't stay on for more than a minute before forcing me to upgrade to the new version which doesn't work. Get your act together Skype!!!!

More people with same issues need to report this to Skype so they could really do something about this. Very annoying. Why do software developers always discriminate against users with older OSX? :sad:
