What we need is cross platform, video (everyone sees everyone), sound (everyone hears everyone), desktop sharing (everyone see's at least one, maybe all), and possibly whiteboard (everyone sees & can draw).

I have a server running already, so I'm up to installing something centralized. Although P2P might be easier over all.

I found BigBlueButton. Sounds like a wonderful idea, but they built that software around the idea that it was the only thing on the server. Grrrrr It's the only thing I've found that I can NOT get to install on Ubuntu 12.04. And I don't want to play around with running it as a VM. Not sure my machine will handle it well as it's just on spec for BBB w/o being VM'd.

So, if anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
