Re: [GnomeMeeting-list] Re: Discussion: 2.2 Proposed Modules List

I think that given how cheap it is now to buy a webcam and to have an
internet connection  gnomemeeting is an essential application for those
with family and friends in far away places.  I have friends and family 
all over the world.  and i tend to agree to an extent with damien i.e.
have a basic desktop and add the bits you want  or to have it all
included.  so you would have a pim, office suite, communications
software, web browser in the core desktop  so the average user doesnt
need to look for what he wants.
