Pros

I love using Samba because it's super easy to use - to create meetings, invite people and most of all, I love that it is browser based - no need to install anything.
I also love how easy it is to set up and join meetings. If I have a meeting with a potential client, I can organise it and send out invites in minutes.
I recommend Samba Live because it's very easy to use. In particular, I appreciate the fact that you can use it directly on the browser, without the need to install any particular program.

Pros

However this product has amazing features specially for virtual classrooms. For me this is very much better than Flagship products.
They came from a flash player into HTML5 with excellent sound, video and great presentational features (provided you have a stable internet connection).
We have most of the features that are an musthave for online learnings. It has the best price-performance ratio and is Open Source so you can customize it like you want.

Cons

Some of the feature is hard to use, and the lacks of video or manual guides of the software make thing harder.
There is a lot information on the website, which makes it unclear. The software is not free.

Cons

The recordings changed the orientation of my slide images making all the notes I took on them useless and confusing.
It's just sad that most people don't know about it or are afraid to use it.
Not much customizable with out having issues with the setup. Recording of comnferences sometimes fails randomly.
