This is the Store link.
Very same problem here. If I click on "Download Now" on the download page, the app store opens, but skype is nowhere to be found.
Searching windows store yields the same result.
Is this because I am running the customer preview Win8?
Probably. You can try updating to Windows Pro.

just download version 6 from here http://www.oldapps.com/skype.php
windows will update if needed. This works with the consumer preview.
HI! Did you update your windows 8 and did it solve problem with skype? Same problem here. I dont know what else I can do. I tried everything.
You can try to update to Windows 8 Enterprise
since upgrading to windows 8 I installed skype (with some difficulty) on my desktop. When I try to do the same on my wife's desktop (same computer) I can't find the skype icon in the Store.
