The same thing happened to me … but then I saw (on the Skype webpage) that Mavericks is required to run Skype 6.19. I'm running Mountain Lion 10.8.5.

Wonder if this has anything to do with Skype refusing to log me in using v5.8. Would they really require paying users to update software in order to use the service? Frustrating. Probably so they can get the NSA enhancements installed on my mac.

[Update] I downgraded to a version 2.x Skype, used it for about a week and now I'm required to change to v 6.something in order to use Skype at all. No notification of the change, and I'm a long time paying customer. Sad, really sad.
