I'm new to the Ubuntu world since I've been using Windows for years. I use Skype and Windows Live Messenger on Windows and I just wondered if these where available on Linux? If not, are there any that are similar that?

Skype works great on Ubuntu, as for Windows Live Messenger, you can try Pidgin or Empathy which both handle the MSN messenger protocol. Most likely these programs will be available in the Ubuntu Software Center under your Applications menu.

skype is available, there are also tons of chat clients that will work on multiple services, you can also get wine which allows you to use any windows program on Linux (although i have not had much luck with it)
