_And_, if for some reason you really want to be able to run the
GoToMeeting client (or similar problem children), you can easily do it
in a VM guest running MS-Windows.  Probably also possible to run it on
native x86 Linux using WINE or Codeweaver; not tested as I haven't
needed to.

Also, there's a limited HTML-only implementation of GoToMeeting called
Web Viewer that runs fine in suitable Linux Web browsers.

Or you could run GoToMeeting on a LAN-local MS-Windows or MacOS box and
share _that_ to your Linux box using VNC, etc.

Lots of ways, if you think about it for a minute.
