Maxxuss of Apple Mac OS X on Intel fame is freeing more hardware and applications for all of us – Thanks to his patch Skype on AMD processors can now do 10-way calling. You see, there’s a limit to the number of participants you can if (5) unless you have an Intel processor (10) – it’s scary that the app looks for the processor ID and then decides to cripple itself, but Maxxus has a patched version of Skype that allows 10-way calling regardless of the processor installed – [via] Link.
