how do I download Skype???

Forums: 

:huh: I have a netbook with Linux but it doesn't have a Skype icone like my other netbok withLinux. I tried to download it but I have two problems.

1) I don't know wich version or whatever it's called I have: ubuntu...??? and I can't find any info about this on my computer!?

2) Which ever one of the versions I try to download it seems to be downloading but then ends up being just a window full of text!? I don't know what to do...

Please help me somebody if it's possible to explaing how I ca get Skype. I use it everyday to cll my grandma in Sweden and right now she's very sad that I can't call her...
