And, lest it be said I disagree with everything Roy posts, this is not the
case here.

FreeSWITCH is an amazing piece of software that leaves Asterisk in the
dust.  I've used FS for about 9 months now, and it's flexibility and
featureset always amaze me.

Asterisk is a piece of crap that after many years still doesn't support
certain key VOIP standards, like SRTP (much less ZRTP as FS does) and SIP
over TCP.  

The Asterisk developers seem more interested in breaking everything so they
can sell more commercial versions.  

Now, granted, FreeSWITCH doesn't have a nice Web configuration tool like
Asterisk, but that will be coming eventually.  If you can deal with hand
editing config files, FS is a very good and more stable alternative (oh,
and it runs on more than just Linux, but I use it on Centos).
