"Well, the Linux bloggers down at the blogosphere's Broken
Windows Lounge had just barely finished chanting Skype's funeral
dirge last week when word came that there might be reason to belt
out another round.
"Sure enough, turned out Skype has decided to cut its ties with
the free and open source Asterisk telephony system, leaving
Microsoft's (Nasdaq: MSFT) new VoIP offering with one fewer FOSSy
friend to worry about supporting -- and leaving Asterisk users with
one fewer option for Skype integration.
"Readers with sharp hearing may have heard the indignant cries
bellowing forth throughout the hills and dales of the Linux
blogosphere last week; all others are surely hearing them now."
