Of course, Brazil lacks enforcement. But so does the US. Go to Chinatown in NYC and you'll see cops walking leisurely by giant DVD pirate shops that are openly and publicly pirating and selling movies. The cops literally look the other way. It's a thriving business in the US, just like you hear about the streets of any third world country. Zero efforts to stop piracy. It's so bad they don't even have to pretend it's not pirated or not doing it in plain site. Biggest city in the country, tables selling pirated goods right on the road side.
The issue now with Avaya is that we can no longer have confidence that they will be able to survive to continue to support their products. An investment like this in something like storage often requires a five to ten year confidence window, with a PBX this is generally more like ten to twenty years.
This isn't quite true. They filed Chapt 11, not 7.
I know, and Chap 11 is enough that you can't rely on the finances of a company. A company that people have been suspecting was going to be not financially viable for years.
I am interested in Xivo (whatever their new name is).
It is not production ready like FreepBX yet, but their goal of making everything accessible via REST API will make it a very flexible thing.
Me too, certainly lots of potential and I hate the FreePBX interface, so am hopeful there.
Let me know what you don't like if you have time!
Also the Wazo(XiVO) developers are great guys. A few of the FreePBX team (Rob Thomas ( @xrobau ) and I) talk to them ( @quintana ) weekly on IRC/Twitter and we've conversed over a hangout session and at Astricon.
Update: We prototyped integrating NoVNC with the Hypersocket VPN. It was relatively simple as it hooked straight into our forwarding mechanism that was already using websockets. Will be releasing an update to support this in the next month or so. We will also integrate our client-less SSH terminal at the same time. RDP is a little more complex so will need further research before we can support this.
