Actually, I think that a built-in dialer would be an EXCELLENT idea!!! I think
that the reasoning is to allow users the option to dial directly from workstation-
to-workstation, vice internet connecting!
This would allow for some semblance of better VTC quality. The data stream
would NOT be sent as packets racing around the world, searching out their
destination. Instead, the data would be passed directly to each workstation on
this 2 machine node!

Whatta GREAT option it'ld be...

I'm voting YEA for this feature,
