I still have an old Windows 98 laptop, which appears to be unaffected by
spyware, virii and the rest of these evils. I would encourage that you just
install Linux if not too many peripherals are involved.
I was going to suggest SSH'ing (or equivalents) to a *nix machine with Skype
installed, but then realised that X forwarding would not be helpful. You
would voice forwarding too...
As said already, VMware licence for using Skype? I fail to see the point.
Not to mention the amount of space that VMware will 'eat up'...
Hope it helps,
