Just two days ago, ooVoo spokespersons were still telling people that it did not support BBOS, Windows, or Symbian. See below.

Today's announcement marks a huge shift. It's hard not to believe there's some major drama behind the scenes here. There are many intriguing possibilities. It may even be the case that ooVoo found out that Skype is now supporting BB10, and didn't want to be left in the dust. Another possibility is that RIM was rejected once again by Skype, and was then led to make an offer that ooVoo couldn't refuse. I don't follow this area of the business that closely, but isn't Google Video Chat in 2nd place, and ooVoo near the top of the also-rans?

Re: Reason for no Linux version?
