No One's Tying Down Open Source
Asterisk runs on a Linux server and does the job of a costly phone system. It handles conventional phones (Digium makes connectors that fit PCI slots) and Internet Protocol phones. It can even run on Apple OS X and Windows servers, though only for voice-over-IP because Digium doesn't have drivers for its connector hardware for those OSes.
