"Moreover, Asterisk has spawned an entire industry of
"embedded" Linux PBX systems, like David Rowe"s Free Telephony
Project. What are your thoughts on this ecosystem?
"Asterisk's greatest achievement may be that it has enabled so
many people in so many markets to leverage its success. It is
precisely this ecosystem that has caused us to change Asterisk's
core focus from being "the application" to recognizing it as being
"the platform" that people are using to build other applications.
As such, we are focusing on improving the Asterisk API to make it
easier for people to build on, rather than just focusing on
throwing even more stuff into Asterisk itself."
