Our Skype infrastructure is still pretty bad. I was on an international call yesterday and it was barely workable.

Does Skype have "Pause" for screen sharing? That feature is pretty clutch for when I need to present content but still want to get some work done. Also, Lync for Mac is terrible (to be fair, WebEx is a lot laggier on Mac than PC as well)

Skype does not always play nice with what our clients.

Depends on the Co. Sometimes skype doesn't work outside the network.

@DD1 No. But you can share the "program" and work on other stuff

@E1: true, and it is nice that I can share multiple programs at once (I'm rarely sharing only 1 program), but if I bring up a non-shared window on top of the shared program it ends up blacking it out for viewers
