Skype is owned by Microsoft, no doubt at all. I know that Skype can be downloaded from its official store but it provides the .exe file which cannot be used on Ubuntu. On the other hand, using Wine is also equally very tough. How can I install Skype on Ubuntu 14.04?

Even though Skype is owned by Microsoft now you can easily install Skype on Ubuntu 14.04 (LTS 64-bit).
