The link leads to a webinar on 4/20/2010. Is that right?

Sorry, I messed up on webinar registration date... Fixed now.

What about a linux-friendly webinar client?

A bit unrelated but it's something I keep thinking about every time I attend an Acquia webinar. It's not just Drupal, there's lot of open source projects out there that have webinars (server monitoring, programming languages, etc.) but they all use gotomeeting. It's a decent webinar platform but having zero Linux support makes it less than ideal. If anyone out there is using something for webinars that's Linux-friendly, I'd really like to hear about it.

Having to boot into Windows just to attend a webinar for an open source project feels dirty to me.

Webinar Options

I've been using Adobe Connect for the past 5 years. (But Adobe sure isn't open source.) I've been experimenting with Big Blue Button - http://bigbluebutton.org/home (There's Drupal integration - http://drupal.org/project/bbb ). It still needs work - but I think worth the effort.

Cross-platform, group conferencing - used that for online seminars. Has voice&video conferencing and desktop streaming & sharing and irc-like backchannels

Designed specifically for 'webinar'-like use, not sure about windows or mac availability

Good to have options

It would be great to have many different webconferencing options for presenters and users alike. Based on our experience yesterday (and the fact that WebEnabled has been kind enough to sponsor), I think we're going to use GoToWebinar for the sessions we're producing. Thing to remember is that anyone can produce and contribute Dojo sessions using whatever platform makes sense. Just as long as it works.

Thanks you two!

Thank you, Vladimir & Grant, for those resources on webinar platforms that run in Linux. Had heard of 2 of those but have never researched them & will be doing so for some of my future projects.
