If you ever had to select a product for something, you probably asked people you trust about their opinion on said product. Most times that’s a good thing.
But what if this “opinion” comes from someone named by the people who made this product? Said product is a video conferencing software for which you have to open a ridiculous number of ports (more than a thousand) in your firewall and which keeps crashing when you try to switch to another program (e.g. for checking your emails).
In principle that would be like trusting this “safe” RBML nuclear reactor technology just because Russia did. You know that it is risky, but if a country that puts stuff into space trusts in it, it should be o.k.. And then the thing blows up. Right.
Until someone figures out a comfortable (easy to use, rock solid, high video and audio quality) way to do video conferencing without tearing 1000 holes into a firewall (and which is not called Skype) I opt for doing phone conferences. That just works the way you expect it to work.
