Thanks for that heads-up Jason - installing m100 now. I have PVX installed as well - but the m100 installation doesn't seem to prompt for deinstallation of PVX before installing m100 so far.
Right now, I'm at the point where the m100 install wants me to download Adobe AIR as a dependency. I'll be back with you when I've spent the mandatory half-hour of facepalming.

Subject: [vvc-l] Desktop video conferencing software roundup - March 2012
There's been a spate of activity lately in the software releases for desktop video conferencing clients - thought it would be an opportune moment for a review of what's been happening.
* Cisco releases Jabber Video for Telepresence (free, hosted Movi, SIP client, Windows/OSX support)
* Polycom renews PVX code and launches m100 (paid, approx AUD$80, SIP/H.323, Windows only)
* Mirial - acquired by LifeSize, push to ClearSea but still available standalone (EUR170, SIP/H.323, Windows/OSX)
* Polycom RealPresence mobile (free, iPad2 or iPhone4 - 4S via CMA server only, some Android models, SIP/H.323)
I would like to throw open the door to a discussion of desktop clients in general, whether the brains trust of VVC-l has had experiences with the above clients (good and bad) or others that they are using (both standalone and managed such as Movi or Vidyo) and how these are deployed and supported.
