The recommended upgrade path is a clean install of Waldorf; this thread will walk you through the process of creating a new user, installing Waldorf, then copying your files from /home/olduser to /home/newuser; a simpler method is to backup to external media and install with a fresh /home partition.
while ( ! ( succeed = try() ) );
We've earned a reputation as a nice, friendly community; please help us keep it that way.
#! foolishly lacks release-upgrade capability; fresh reinstall is only supported method. However, that minor detail shouldn't stop you from installing an older version of Skype; have you read this page (first google hit for "debian skype")?
It is not necessary to replace your nice stable system with testing just to install Skype.

No, but Waldorf is more than stable enough to do the install anyway. There will be no need to reinstall Waldorf when it goes stable.
@snowpine I roll with #! using smxi.
No problems with effectively apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. (no re-installs since #! switched to Debian)

Just wondering . . . how exactly is this foolish?
