I use Teams, Zoom and Webex for different things. Zoom has less friction. They are using Apple's core tenet that people-will-pay-more-to-not-read-the-m​anual. They will be right. And if you think they won't charge more down the road ... well, you're entitled to what you believe.

Zoom is also the bright-shiny-object and most people will want to use it since it's more "user friendly" which means "I am scared of computers because I am lazy and you are a computer person and yes I drove a car here and that doesn't mean I'm a car person and my nephew is great with computers and he uses Zoom because he is too poor to pay for anything because he's 12."

Which is fine. There is no law on what conferencing service to use. But I always have doubts when the people making technology decisions are the ones who absolutely refuse to do simple comparative analysis of the options because "they aren't a computer person."

But maybe I'm just scarred from putting a 12-step group on Webex in the last month.
