[News] Asterisk Follows the Installfests Tradition of GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Installfests: First Linux, Now Asterisk

,----[ Quote ]
| I’ve attended my share of Linux installation festivals (installfests), where 
| open source volunteers typically take donated Windows PCs and revive them as 
| Linux systems. Now, the installfest craze seems to have found a new calling: 
| The Asterisk IP PBX market, where open source meets telephony.

| Fonality(R), the leading provider of open source business communications
| systems, announced today that the first quarter of 2008 marked its fifteenth
| consecutive quarter of high growth, and that the company has doubled in size

| “Asterisk consists of 200,000 lines of code,” says Lyman. “We wrote 1.3
| million lines of code. It wasn’t an overnight coding job, if you know what I
| mean. Just to put it in perspective of just how ‘thin’ Asterisk is compared
| to the code we had to write, we were 25 engineers and four years into writing
| application code, and we probably had twice as many people working on our
| product as were working on Asterisk itself. People who understand software
| know that it’s exponentially hard to make things simple in software. Asterisk
| is written in C, and a lot of our code is written in web code, so that’s
| actually written in PERL and HTML.        



Open-Source VOIP Made Easy

| Review: AsteriskNow GUI lowers barriers to entry and eases the
| transition from testing to deployment.  


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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
