FLOSS Weekly #126 Features Askozia PBX

It’s always great when a FOSS project starts to get broad recognition. Earlier this week Michael Iedema of AskoziaPBX was the featured guest on FLOSS Weekly with Randal Schwartz and Aaron Newcomb.

AskoziaPBX is one of the most interesting embedded Asterisk distributions. I’ve followed it from its earliest days, having tried it myself on various small hardware platforms.

I believe that Randall got wind of AskoziaPBX when Michael appeared on a recent VUC call. Congratulations to everyone involved in the project. The attention is well deserved.

AsteriskNOW! Is Out Of Beta

As of a couple of days ago AsteriskNOW is no longer in beta. I just downloaded release v1.01 this evening. It weighs in a a hefty 501 MB for the ISO. I’m thinking that I’ll fire it up on a test system to get a look at the GUI.

Maybe it will convince me to move away from Astlinux. I thought that Askozia might be worth a try, too. But I’m still running Astlinux.

In the mean time, congratulations to everyone who worked on the project.
