Application is able to start, no crash.
What does not
I am not able to login. It perhaps due to regulator restriction in UAE, not due to Wine issue. Newer version of Skype is able to pass the firewall (experience on Windows XP).

HOWTO Skype 3 with Wine
1. Install Wine 0.9.29 (verified) and begin with a fresh ~./wine directory.
2. Install Skype 188.8.131.52 (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!
