    You can download skype from http://www.skype.com.
    Check the WineHQ for Onenote test results: WineHQ - OneNote.
    Good luck.

    How to do that?
    I installed wine only a couple of days ago, which still couldnt launch qq, a much simpler software than onenote.

    I followed the procedures in your website, use winecfg to launch the configuration panel, add some programs like msn, snipping tool and onenote there, click apply, then ok. but I still couldnt start these programs.
    I thought after adding these programs, there should appear some links pointing to them. However in fact, I didn't see any such links. The available windows programs are still limited to regedit & notpad.
    And when I run winecfg again, I found those programs which I tried to add before were not added into it at all. Maybe programs should be added in a different way?
    Thanks.

    Ok seems i need to update my page.
    All windows apps are in ~.wine which is a hidden folder in your /home
    The path is ~.wine/drive_c/Program Files
    You can substitute ~ with /home/yourUserName/
    You will find onenote in /Microsoft Office/Office12


    Follow my guide to creating shortcuts
    For onenote the link is wine "cprogram files\Microsoft Office\Office12\ONENOTE.EXE" the smily has replaced colon\
    You can test it by putting it in a run command (Alt+F2)

    On a side note i recommend amsn really good msn clone which runs natively in Linux. You can get it with yast if you have the packman repo

    the onenote is installed in windows, but I cannot see it in
    .wine/drive_c/Program Files
    and, adding programs through winecfg panel seems not work.
    I add it, but it disappears next time I open winecfg.

    You don't add them with the panel just click on the installer (.exe) the same way as with windows. I described how on my page
