Making TrixBox not like TrixBox

Today I was hammered with information about why TrixBox is starting to suck..... my easy-to-install VoIP solution was recently acquired by fonality who wants to make it an easy-to-pay-them VoIP solution. Fear not... I have been provided with solutions from my friend over at eicomm.

Those of us who like open source and VoIP solutions and are lazier than most have a new hero: Tom King

Right now the currently solution is to install TrixBox 2.3.0.1 and then run the script from Tom's site (http://www.script-trix.us/trixbox_2_3_xb.htm). Yes -- this will break a lot of the trixbox functionality but from what I'm reading this is exactly what you want to do.

Of course, if you have lots of money you can go with TrixBox Pro which does offer some cool features such as online backup and sync.... but for those of us that are maintaining systems for Non-Profit organizations and for personal hobby, well, that just isn't an option.

So basically, if you want paid solutions, look no further than TrixBox Pro but if you want real open source, visit Tom's site above and see what he currently has cooking. As of this post, he is working on a bare centos5 script which will seemingly be the way to go once he releases it.

Thanks Tom!

trixbox Pro is only ONE of the solutions provided by Fonality. Your beloved trixbox CE has just hired additional development resources to get development moving faster and provide more features. The free, open source version of trixbox is here to stay and is not going away.
