remote support / web demo software

Originally, this entry was suppose to be detailed review of 3 different remote desktop / presentation / demo software packages. However, I haven't made time to write anything so extensive. Here is the quick and dirty summary.

- GotoMeetings Pro : well integrated into IM, outlook, and other desktop applications. Con : heavy install, Windows only. Most expensive.

- GatherPlace Pro : Java based and support multiple platform. Web based or very small desktop footprint. Con : not so easy to use.

- TeamViewer Pro : FREE for non-commerical use. Easy to install. Con : windows only, limited to 5 users.

I like teamviewer the best so far.

I want to suggest you try - its an alternative tool for gatherplace that allows document sharing and Free Web meeting in real-time. all the participants in the session see each others' drawing, highlights, etc. It is free and requires no installation.
