    Here's another related article from Neowin w/screenshots.

    Skype for Metro leaks, we go hands on - Neowin

    There is no download link @ Neowin and as far as I know, there is no 64bit version at this point.

    Don

    BTW, the download link @ WINHAX in kemical's OP was removed as per MS

    Not sure there will be a 64bit app. Microsoft tends to stick with 32bit for Windows UI apps for better compatibility.

    Tried this morning but couldn't get it installed. Oh well, official release can't be far.
