Getting Skype to work on a PPC (Ubuntu 12.04)

Hello guys,
I am quite new to Linux,
Recently I have been trying to revive an old PowerBook G4
2 Gb DDR ram

So I installed a version of Linux that works on a PPC architecture.
The problem I am facing is that Skype (as well as many other Microsoft applications) do not function on PPC architecture

If anyone knows a fix for it could you please share your knowledge

Lots of Hope :)

Since skype isn't available for PPC and it's closed source, the only way to run it is to emulate an x86 architecture using for example qemu. In other words: you will have to run a VM with a seperate OS installation.

Thank you very much.
I will be trying that out.
