Such a generalized, unsupported statement is incorrect without specific
circumstances. It also may be misleading to someone reading this
information to make an evaluative decision.

But then again, this is the Internet ;-)

What version of Reflector? Freeware? 2.0? 2.1? MeetingPoint? What
platform? What speed box? How much memory? What bandwidth was available?
What kind of clients? What bandwidth are the clients connected at? What
machine are the clients running on?

I have to admit, there are some Refs out there running on not such great

A blanket statement such as you made is not correct. I can EASILY get
multiple videos, even on my CU-SeeMe 2.11 for Win3.1 cient when connected
to a busy White Pine cafe. My Mom (again) when not sending can see as many
as 3 video Windows on America Online on a 33.6 modem connection using
CU-SeeMe 3.0 on the White Pine Cafe.

With CU-SeeMe 3.1 (or even the Cornell client) I can also get multiple
windows (but that is from work as I don't have the Cornell client at home).
