Just a quick query...

What are the differences between the Mac and Windows versions of the client?
Peter Parnes
1) Document import
Windows can import Word and Powerpoint while Mac can import PDF. After import the documents can be viewed on all platforms in the whiteboard.

2) Application sharing
Mac can share a section of the display while Windows can share single windows/applications.

3) Simultaneous meetings
Windows can participate in many e-meetings at the same time while on Mac it is one at a time.

Besides that everything it the same.

Happily, this is now in the past. Mac OS X users, Linux and Windows now use the same application sharing that was introduced in Marratech 5.0

Much easier and better!

Also, our MeetNow technology allows multiple Marratech clients running at the same on the Mac allowing for participation in several sessions in the same time.

Will the Macintosh ever be able to import MS Office the same way Windows does?
Serge
It is certainly something on the to do list.

Windows user want PDF, Mac users want Office :-)

If anyone knows how to invoke Office OLE objects from Mac OS X, let us know...

This page seems to indicate that there are some OLE objects available on Mac OS X, though it is rather limited in scope. I'm including this for future reference - i don't know if it is usable.

If we are moving into theoretical solutions, another thread might be to use OpenOffices code instead which can open most word documents today.
