How do I keep IT from forcing Windows Lync on me?
My company rolled out Lync, so now IT wants me to use Windows, because there is no MS Linux Lync client. I see some people use Pidgin for Lync chat, but it's just chat. I don't want to switch to Windows just for Lync. Does someone know a good workaround?
