Humm... webex is *not* a web based chat system (I happen to think that
all chat system are lame.) Webex is a collaborative meeting environment
that allows you to have Voice-over-IP or standard Phone based
conferencing, shared prensentations/whiteboard, etc. (and a [lame] sync
chat system :-) It also allows you to share the presenters desktop, if
/(s+)he/ is running under Windoze.

Just a thought.
