DimDim seems like a great alternative to their much more expensive competition. Linux users can view other's desktops, but cannot currently host. (http://help.dimdim.com/activekb/questions/48/) On the bright side, there's already multiple enhancement requests to support Linux desktop sharing. I voted it up a few months ago. :) Until then...I'll have to stick with Webex....
