Hmmm This cant be good.

(For the non geeks in the room some definitions below )
Trixbox is an ISO compilation of Asterisk;
-An iso is like a package or version of installation.
-Asterisk is an opensource application for IP Telephony (go to for a 60 second overview).
-Trixbox owned by Fonality is totally separate to the owners of Asterisk which is Digium (and still very Pro-OpenSource and Free).

Trixbox was 'licensed' by Fonality recently and as I've been using this product since the very beginning when it was called Asterisk@home (well even before that when it wasn't even an ISO but just an installation guide for AMP .....but hey Andrew why let the truth get in the way of a good story).

This iso makes it very easy to install Asterisk and I couldn't have run my business for the last 4 years without it.... which is why Monday seems very ominous.

Not saying it's a bad thing everyone has the right to make a living but when you have 10 open positions on your job board you really are setting yourself up to be in a position that sponsorship or advertising revenue just isn't going to cut it any more.

Guess I'm off to download the latest version before it gets pulled from sourceforge.
