Skype for Slackware
 
I was just looking through Skype.com and noticed that there's no Skype download, although there is a Static one and also for Debian as well as Ubuntu (amongst some other distros).

Does Skype work well in WINE or am I just better off waiting for a Linux distro?

One slight reason for my concern is because I've heard that Microsoft bought Skype, and if that occurs we might not get as much support as we need and may have to resort to using WINE for Skype.

Hello Konphine,

you can use the static version of skype with Slackware. But note that if you're running Slackware64 you'll have to install AlienBob's multilib.
