Chatting, file sends, profile browsing, user search, single and multiple user conference works flawlessly.
What does not
Avatars does not show, experienced a crash when loading Skypecast page, due to some problems with mshtml.dll, probably nothing serious.
What was not tested
I'm using Skype 220.127.116.11 as a substitute for the old linux native version with no particular problems. The speed is very close as running it in Windows. It has minor rendering bugs, like icons not rendered correctly and avatars not shown.

HOWTO Skype 3 with Wine
1. Install Wine 0.9.29 (verified) and begin with a fresh ~./wine directory.
2. Install Skype 18.104.22.168 (verified) from http://www.skype.com and the SkypeSetup.exe file. The installer should run flawlessly.
Run #winecfg and select Windows 98 mode for Skype.exe if it's not
already done. You may use the ALSA sound driver with this program,
however OSS will work just as well. Select native support for shdocvw.dll and shlwapi.dll. More information on this can be found here.
4. Use Skype!
