,----[ Quote ]
| Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, today announced that the award-winning 
| Asterisk open source telephony software was downloaded 1.5 million times in 
| 2008, more than any other year in company history and an impressive 50 
| percent higher than last year. The announcement caps a year of milestones and 
| accolades for Digium and marks a promising start to 2009, when Digium 
| celebrates the 10th anniversary of Asterisk, the open source software that 
| has changed the telecommunications world.      


Needless to say, this typically get installed on GNU/Linux.

| Imagine an IP voice and unified communications system that can be integrated
| into any application and customised to meet business needs. Sounds great,
| right? Well that project is the Asterisk IP-PBX and it's free to use and you
| get the source code. A far cry from proprietary PBX systems perhaps, but
| Asterisk has a vibrant ecosystem and is replacing systems from more
| established telephony vendors.


The Impact of Open Source VoIP

,----[ Quote ]
| The second part of the story of the impact of Open Source VoIP to the whole
| telecom market is made of softphones and stacks. Ekiga (formerly known as
| GnomeMeeting), Linphone or PhoneGaim, just to name some, have been a great
| source of knowledge for new entrant developers in this field and a great way
| for providers to offer a cheap way to make phone calls from your PC.



Asterisk is More Than Just a Phone System

,----[ Quote ]
| Personally, I can think of about 25 things (don’t worry I am not competing)
| that I have heard people do with Asterisk and as the visibility and viability
| of open source communications continues to grow, more and more applications
| and uses are coming out each and every day. In a effort to have a little fun
| and to catalog the many uses and applications of Asterisk, VoIP Supply has
| partnered with Digium, the creators of Asterisk, to run a contest here on the
| VoIP Insider to find 101 things you can do with Asterisk.


Linux dominating VoIP devices?

,----[ Quote ]
| Trolltech says its development framework and software stack for mobile
| devices was selected by Skype as the preferred platform for Skype-certified
| VoIP (voice-over-IP) phones. Additionally, the Qtopia framework/stack has
| been used in about 40 VoIP devices, making it the "dominant Linux
| development platform for VoIP/WiFi devices," according to Trolltech.
