Many people have one "work" account and one "personal" account and they need to run two Skypes simultaneously. Luckily there is easy solution for that:

For Windows: Create new shortcut for Skype on your desktop, right-click on it and press Properties. On "Shortcut" tab in the "Target" field you will see something like  "C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe". Click after closing quote and add a space and /secondary so it looks like:  "C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary. Press OK and now you can start your second Skype with this shortcut.

For Linux: you just need to create new "shortcut" on your desktop for skype and then edit it so command looks like: skype --dbpath=~/.Skype_User2 --secondary

where .Skype_User2 will be the directory for your new skype profile.
