As if they didn't learn their lesson with skype for business.

There's a Skype for Business written in JavaScript? I know there is Skype, but it doesn't talk to our Skype for Business (Lync) server.... I have to use Pidgin for that. (Linux)

Definitely not. Unless it's the godawful Mac client that doesn't work for most things, which is possible, since it's using UCWA under the covers.

The Skype for Business Windows client was barely reskinned from the Lync 2013 client. I think they are still only a couple dozen patch revisions apart on the version number.

That's what I thought. It's tough to use Linux in a Windows shop. I have most of it figured out, though.

It would just be nice to be able to join Skype/Lync meetings with Screen sharing.

I don't think I mentioned Skype for Business anywhere did I? :-)
