Re: [GnomeMeeting-list] Interest for GM 2.00

Hi Damien, 
find my comments inline.

At least we are evaluating the use of an Asterisk box for our company, to 
replace our actual system. The chances, as far as I can see, are high, that we 
will go with that. :) 
Well, we also use Linux/KDE desktops for day to day work, so there are 
corporate users wanting to have a Linux softphone client.

Well, in our corporate we are running Linux/KDE on the users desktops, so 
there will be used on the corporate side. Well I only tested the 1.X Version 
to connect via H.323 to our actual telephone system.

Well, with the Asterisk as the telephone system and with the Linux/KDE clients 
there are plenty of client tools available, but I am a bit unsure whether they 
are that complete like the upcoming 2.0 of GM, with that lot of features.

Well it depends, what other projects do you have in mind? 
Nevertheless, thank you for Gnomemeeting!! 
kind regards
