Having used both, I think I prefer zoom now.

It's free to a point but as far as I've seen it works pretty darn well
!

There are other options out there too of course.

Jabber for one. Open source. Can't screen share though as far as I
know.

for yourself will probably take less time.

Since you're suppose to be a Linux supporter, you might want to look
at Jitsi (Open source, free, and runs on Windoze, Linux, MacOS, IOS
and Android.):

We're starting to use it for our local Linux user group. Very little
experience so far and no clue about potential performance issues.

It depends which spies you want listening.


Well, that would have been nice to see at least a half definition of.

Oh... that's what you did. Well that == half assed.

Which is which and for which would have been nice.

This group is notorious for being more fucking vague than a fucking
politician... a fucking republitard politician at that.

For a 1:1( or even 3:1) with friends, Skype. For business with pre

It's not that difficult to do 1 to 1 or and "instant meeting" with
Zoom.
1. Register with Zoom to get an account and password or login
with Google, SSO, or Farcebook.
2. Login to your Zoom account with a web browser at:
<https://zoom.us>
3. Select "Profile" from the menu.
4. The first item is "Personal Meeting ID".
5. Select "Show" (twice) to get the Personal Meeting ID number and
the URL to give others to connect to you directly or to setup "instant
meetings". Save both for future abuse.
6. If you plan to host a meeting, also grab the "Host Key" further
down the page.
7. Do not leak the URL or "host key" (password) to the GUM (great
unwashed masses) or you're likely to be "Zoom Bombed".

I was on a jitsi conference last Saturday using Jabber. It works
great !
It doesn't support screen sharing as of yet I don't think but that's
OK

I prefer GoToMeeting for the sole reason that is it already setup on my work computer, and the very few groups that I need to attend remotely use that platform.

Otherwise, for the types of meetings I'm usually involved in, all those fancy bells and whistles are pretty much useless. (And I'm sure GTM has them too.)

What truly annoys me is when Presenters are still fumbling with the technology when the actual meeting starts. I have walked out of some of those. If you're going to host a meeting, learn how to use the platform first, regardless of which one you pick! 20 people on the line waiting for a Presenter to get a clue is not an efficient use of manpower.

I'll never use Skype again on principle, since they attempted to covertly
bar access to Linux users. Fuck 'em. Anyway, from what I gather, Zoom is
the hottest thing out there currently and what I would go with if I were
looking for a new video-calling service.

So, you would use Zoom simply because it is "the hottest thing out
there." Is that the only criterion you use when selecting products?
