AsteriskFrom RedNova:

The clash between open source and proprietary telephony solutions has arrived

I am running out of options for areas in my IT operation that legitimately shouldn't be open source. Operating system? Linux works like a champ. Web server? If you're not running Apache at this point, what are you doing? Database layer? MySQL scales fine for most Web-based apps, and basic master/slave software clustering for it is free, which can save roughly six figures over a commercial solution if you're running more than a couple of database servers. App server? J Boss if you want Java, or you could just use PHP running on Apache, among many other choices. OK, I haven't spent any money on software yet, and hardware is cheap. I'm surveying my office right now, looking for something that I couldn't enable with open source software, and my eyes fix on that ugly corporate phone that hooks into the old PBX. I feel helpless before it - I look at it and the words "lock in" might as well be blaring from the speakerphone. There's nothing I can do about it. Open source can't help me with my crusty old PBX. Except that it can. And for me, that suggests that open source can - and will - go anywhere and everywhere.

The recent release of Asterisk@Home, a Linux distribution dedicated to making Asterisk easy to install and configure, is a big help.
