That might work although I'm uncertain how to do that
bi-directionally. (sp?) Also, we both run multiple VMs each end so
with GoToMeeting we can bring multiple VMs into the meeting and then
choose which one gets to display. That allows all the other attending
VMs to see what the display VM has going on.

Additionally, I've wanted to get to the point where the two of us,
both using Gentoo, can display our Gentoo desktops as well as the VMs.
That would allow us to better talk about Linux software instead of
just being stuck in the VM jail...

GoToMeeting also handles the audio so any attending VM can speak and
be heard by all attendees. It's pretty cool, but it's not Linux, and
certainly not FOSS.

I guess I should go look for Linux-based meeting software. I have no
alignment with VNC. It's just the only thing I've ever used in this
space and I don't think I've heard of the KDE Meeting stuff (Remote
Desktop?) ever working well enough for us to really use it.

Thanks for the ideas though. I'll keep studying and see if anyone else
has ideas that would really replace G2M.
