THANKS!! SO STUPID TO NEED TO LOG IN FOR A DOWNLOAD!
Same situation here: I'm rebuilding a work computer, our company has an account with Skype, but I don't have the log-in details (the boss would deal with that) - all I want is to get the PC running again after a major Windows crash...
Hurdles & more hurdles :(

Brilliant, thanks for posting this.

Forcing users to sign up or sign in to download your software is insanely stupid.
I'm convinced this makes less people use Skype and hurt them that way..

I wanted to let you know I use your web page all the time. This is because I am constantly setting up computers for other people, not myself, and I want to download the 'latest' version of skype instead of carrying around a binary on a flash drive. Thanks for the links!
