25 Windows Meeting Space

Windows Meeting Space, available in all Vista editions except Home Basic, allows you to connect with others around you to share files, applications, or control of your entire computer. Although Windows Meeting Space doesn't support connections over the Internet, it is very useful for in-person meetings or a meeting with all participants in the same building.

For example, instead of several people in a meeting gathering around a PC or laptop trying to see the screen, Windows Meeting Space allows people to see the live image of the screen on their own computer, as shown in Figure 3.27. You can connect with each other over a wired or wireless network or by using a peer-to-peer (ad hoc) wireless connection.
