Did you read the following sentence: "Share computer audio is still 
available, but a participant must be viewing that shared screen to hear 
the computer audio."? Nice try but not enough! In /Jitsi/, i would not 
be limited to only hear the audio of the screen-sharer but of every 

In addition: can /Zoom/ beat /Jitsi/ by allowing participation with no 
account creation requirement? Can it even get close to it? Can it offer 
a public room without any credentials for anytime? i guess no because 
they might be interested of controlling what is going on. i would like 
you to prove me wrong. i am not a protector of /Jitsi/. you can offer a 
better alternative as long as any proprietary software is excluded and 
your offered software is FOSS.
