If you’re not one to turn down a new challenge and you consider yourself an open source purist, then this Bud’s for you. Last month we introduced the latest and greatest Ubuntu 14 offering with Incredible PBX. And today it’s RedHat’s turn with the brand new CentOS 7. Be forewarned that CentOS 7 is a very different Linux animal than CentOS 6.5, and it’s just two weeks old. RHEL 7 is only six weeks old. There are more than a… Read More ›

Add to that the complications of getting one to work reliably with VoIP without spending another $50 a month on a Ma Bell vintage telephone line just adds insult to injury. So perhaps you can share our elation when an email arrived last week announcing Straight Talk’s new Remote Alert System, a $10/month cellular-based system that… Read More ›

Summer has always been the season for experimentation at Nerd Vittles, and 2014 is shaping up to be a banner year. Red Hat® has been a pioneer in all things Linux® so we were anxious to take their latest technologies for a spin. Nothing sums up Fedora™ 20 better than Cubieboard’s graphic (shown above). For those new to open source, Fedora is where the Bleeding Edge action is. If you like roller coasters and fast cars, then you’ll feel right… Read More ›

Let’s begin with what we know and don’t know about Google Voice and Google’s May 15 deadline. Google has made it crystal clear that XMPP connectivity to Google Voice is going away on May 15. What that means is that inbound and outbound calling using an XMPP… Read More ›
