Speaking of time of development, just what is the proposed timeline
for CUSeeMe? I see from Dick's response below that it may be a year
before a viable (?) product is ready. Is that a true statement? From
my evaluations of other company's products, I believe that we'll see
about a 4 to 6 month window before the first _good_ products hit the
shelves (there's some pretty crappy stuff out there now). I hope that
the CUSeeMe product can make that timeline.

No pressure, ;)

Ummm... Actually, in this case, the Windows version *has been* ahead. The
problem fixed in the Mac version didn't exist in the Windows version, hence
didn't need to be fixed. Windows development started about 15 months after
Mac development, and we have now narrowed that gap to perhaps 9 months. We
plan to pull it into about 2 months or less within the year, if we can.
