I'm just about to change into linux, but I have one question.
Would be possible to use programs like NetMeeting from Microsoft?
And other programs windows base like Net2phone or pc2phone kind of
programs.
Will buy these two books "Linux Encyclopedia with CDROM"and "Linux the
complete reference with cdrom".
From those book will be able to get the system.
But I'm open to any other idea about where to get the program,

The only way to run windows programs from within Linux is via a virtual
machine/emulator (such as VMWare( or by using WINE (which attempts to
duplicate the windows API... It's still in developement and doesn't cover
everything.
