Fair enough - and I see your point. Then again, the issues with Digium and their generally lackluster support of Asterisk goes back a while, as I recall Ward's articles about Digium not really eating their own dog food (i.e. not running Asterisk company wide, for example). Though, to be perfectly honest, dissing Asterisk just because Digium sucks, is kinda throwing out the baby with the bathwater - if Digium is asleep at the wheel, couldn't others pick up that slack? I'm not familiar with FreeSwitch, though. Is that just another fork of Asterisk, or something completely separate? Asterisk is just the flavor/associated associated with Digium, right? Other forks exist?
