The following is the change to get the thing to just work:
HKLM\Software\Skype\Phone\Audio\ and set the DisableCodecs value to read ILBC G729 EG711U
Attached Zip includes a reg file you can just import.
This forces Skype to use the EG711A codec, this requires very little power. The voice incoming is perfect, just perfect but outgoing becomes more monotone but totally usable. They can hear you. The other downside is Skype for Linux only supports G729 codec but leaving that enabled is what kills Skype. echo123 the test call runs on Skype Linux so you cant use that. But seeing as all my contacts and most peoples run skype for windows all is well.
The second change is to add the Skype Today plugin. It adds a few entrys to the following key:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Today if you dont want it just untick it from the today screen settings or delete that key. It loads a DLL that is included in the Skype 2.1 beta.
Thats it, the install is just the bog standard Skype for Low CPU devices but with the added DLL for today and the registry change above but most are unable to make such changes so I just made it simple. If you want to just get it working without installing just make the first registry change.
Also included a screenshot of the Today plugin, nothing exciting.
