So, I wanted to dig up this old thread because a couple of weeks ago, I found an open
source project on github for MS Teams called
teams-for-linux at https://github.com/IsmaelMartinez/teams-for-linux
which I have found is
smaller than the dud made available by MS, and works
reasonably well and definitely better than the official MS one. RPMs are available
but I think no repo.
Hopefully, this is helpful to those who need to use MS Teams.

An even better question would be: Are the others in the conference
likely to have compatible hardware and software? :-).
We just used Microsoft Teams (which I imagine isn't remotely
free, but our work IT department is obsessed with Microsoft).
It was moderately OK, has an unbelievably annoying linux
version: For instance, you can't ever exit, it keeps running forever till
you find it and kill it with extreme prejudice, it insists on
being full screen, but doesn't position the window at (0,0),
it pops up new chat notifications directly on top of the area
you are trying to type in, etc.
I eventually gave up on the linux version and used the android
app on an old tablet I didn't mind contaminating.
