Skype for Linux is not compiled for the ARM CPU in the Raspberry Pi so it won't run.
Also, the Raspberry Pi doesn't have audio input.

I don't have Skype running as an app but I do have the Skypekit running an my Pi.

I am taking part in the Skype Development program where you have access to the Skypekit, which you can use to build your own Skype Application.
