A Liberating Betrayal?

Having suspended disbelief for as long as I could, my ability to take Microsoft at their word over Skype was shattered yesterday on hearing the announcement by Digium, sponsors of the widely-used Asterisk VoIP project, that they have been told they can no longer sell their Asterisk-Skype interaction module after July 26. That means it will become impossible for this VoIP PBX to connect to Skype.

In one move, we have illustrated the risk of a hybrid open source model, the danger of dependency on a proprietary system, a proof that Microsoft still can't be trusted with open source and an impetus to open source innovation. All in one announcement.

Microsoft seems intent on cutting its link with Linux.

Well who didn't see that one coming down the pipe.
