Windows Meeting Space, previously known as Windows Collaboration and Windows Shared View, is the codename of a peer-to-peer collaboration program in Windows Vista which lets 2-10 users start sessions with other users for collaboration. It is a replacement for the older Windows NetMeeting application. Windows Meeting Space automatically sets up an ad hoc network if it can't find an existing network. This lets customers use it in a conference room, a hotspot, or a place where no network exists. People can join a session that someone else sets up, or they can start a session and invite other people to join. Wikipedia does not have an article with this exact name. ...
