    Hi kahvergengi,

    skype is not open source, you will not find it in the default repositories. Skype for Linux is a re-launch of the application in 2016, just download and install it here: https://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-linux/

    sudo dpkg -i skype-ubuntu-precise_4.3.0.37-1_i386.deb

    WINE is in the repository, but an old version. WINE 1.8.5 is the current stable version, wine 1.9.X are the developer version. Dev-versions are updating every 2 weeks. https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

    STEAM is in the repositories, but may it is better you download steam from steampowered.com , and then again:

    sudo dpkg -i steam*.deb

    If you have any specific question later, just ask it here :)

    PS: For PPA and .deb installers, you have to install some packages because elementaryOS is the only distirbution ubuntu-based, which just REMOVED the possibility to install PPAs (dont ask me why!!)

    sudo apt install software-properties-common install python3-software-properties python-software-properties
