Today there's a free, open source alternative.

It's called Dimdim. It was featured this morning at Demo07 and, according to the corporate blog, the name standards for Distributed Immersive Meetings.

    If you want an alternative to NetMeeting or Dimdim check out TurboMeeting from RHUB ( http://www.rhubcom.com/ ). RHUB has an extremely solid product with multi-point video. While not Open Source, at least it's not from the Evil Empire.
