Hi Andrew, dear All!

I think, the main goal of  David was to encourage everybody needing 
H.323 / SIP software clients on non-Windows platforms like Macs and 
Linux to enter his personal needs for that on the Polycom web page:
So the guys from PLCM or Tandberg or VCON etc. would finally notify that 
comparing Windows to Mac / Linux installations in education & research 
would give an almost equal distribution. May be 50%Windows, 35% Linux & 
15% Macs, this is about the situation in the German Max-Planck-Society.
PVX is working fine, compatible with all hardware H.323 clients, so the 
embedding in the AG world should be straightforward.
