"it runs on Windows - no Linux experience required."


A company is "giving away" - 3CX Phone System is a complete software-based office phone system that "integrates easily with most business networks because it runs on Windows - no Linux experience required."

http://www.prleap.com/pr/70547/

Anybody know of any previous "no linux experience required" blurb in ads?

My hunch is that there were countering someone who was selling a Linux-based system.

That would kinda suck to have to reboot your phone in the middle of an important call. LOL

After looking at their forum site & build history it seems that they missed "alpha testers required" from the PR crap.

How long ago was asterisk dveloped?

HA!
They will let the public do the alpha testing, just as Microsoft did with 9.x/Me

"no linux experience required" -- that is weird. That ad must be a joke.

Actually, it might be a valid selling-point to some manager who has a cube-farm full of Windows experience and no one about who knows Linux.

And, if they did their engineering work halfway decently, either type of kernel ought to be able to support a phone-switch.
