[K12OSN] GoToMeeting client

Just an idea here, but as an alternative, IE could be hosted on a native MS box, and exported via an RDP session, Windows Terminal Server, or Citrix. The GoToMeeting client should work in that environment, but I haven't tried it myself. As long as you don't have to many sessions going, a minimal solution might be a couple of Windows boxes or VMs exporting IE via some links published on the thin clients. More demand could scale up to an MS terminal server, or Citrix. Riverdale HS did something similar (ms terminal server desktop published to K12LTSP clients) a decade ago, and although it was available, it was barely utilized. Slippery slope, anyone?

Does GoToMeeting work on ordinary Linux desktop?  If not, there is no
chance it will work on LTSP.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find anyone that has posted
anywhere that GoToMeeting can be made to work on Firefox-x.x.

The only workaround is to run Internet Explorer via Wine and install the
latest Windows Media Player 11 to run GoToMeeting this way.

So, as of now GoToMeeting can not work natively on Linux/Firefox,so i
guess it isn't really a k12ltsp issue exclusively.
