  1. That's very nice and simple from a technical point of view. Can it be turned into an Automator workflow?

  2. Right now, now !dea about it.

  3. /secondary is windows version argument, you don't need it for mac just sudo it

  4. As many have pointed out it's a really bad idea to run any application as a privileged user unless you know what you are doing. Running "sudo " says "run as the superuser on this computer". You are essentially giving the permissions it needs to do *anything* it wants to on your computer. If there was a bug in the application that, let's say, attempted to delete a bunch of operating system files it wouldn't run as a regular user, it would though under sudo.
    The better option is to create a separate regular user on your machine and run Skype.
