I have been using this program for a couple of years now. First as a linux user, later as windows user too I like it very much. At first it was new to me and it took some time for me to get to know how it works. But now I think it is one of the best out there. There are some problems with the program when it comes to video conferencing,but the developers are working on it. my regards to danny and his team
