Skype 5-way Calling Limit Cracked

“It turns out when Skype limited 10 way calling to Intel Processors only it really was arbitrary! Maxxus has a patched version
of Skype that allows 10-way calling regardless of the processor
installed. There's also info about the patch: “The patch is the result
of two phases: code analysis and design of the patch. The code
analysis, or reverse engineering, reveals the relevant code block,
which overrides Skype's limitation for Intel's dual-core CPUs. The
patch design isolates the minimal set of instructions that need to be
modified to cancel this limitation.” Windows only so far.”
