Going back to Windows after Ubuntu

Trying to install Skype on Ubuntu sent this user back to WindowsXP

To illustrate, I’ll describe the process of installing the free application Skype for both Windows and Linux.
Windows: Do a Google search for Skype, click on first result, find download link, click download, run, next, next, next, installed. The process is simple and straightforward.
Linux: Do a Google search, skype for linux, click on first result. Here are the choices: RPM for SuSe 9 and newer; RPM for Fedora Core; RPM for Mandriva 10.1 and newer; Debian Package; Dynamic Binary Tar.bz2; and finally, Static binary tar.bz2 with QT 3.2 compiled in.
The fun doesn’t stop here.
