"The latest example: John Frederiksen (pictured),
general manager of Microsoft's Response Point business, is

"Microsoft Response Point is a small business phone system.
Frederiksen leads worldwide product development, marketing and
business development for Response Point -- which appears to be on a
collision course with Asterisk."
