A few years ago I tried using net meeting with 2 fairly slow computers running 98SE and it was abysmal. Now I have a computer in France running XP Home on a 2.8 Mhz machine and my daughter has a 2.0 Mhz machine running XP Pro back in England. Before I get too carried away what sort of results can I expect as far as chatting to each other via net meeting (with video) using these 2 computers. Also I read ages ago that there are better/more user friendly systems around than net meeting. Is this true?
