Virtually the entire company at Fonality has been working day and night for the last couple of months to release our newest product, trixbox Pro. trixbox Pro is a departure from the completely open source compilation that trixbox CE has been, although it is still based on Digium's Asterisk Open Source PBX software. While many people have wanted a more reliable, stable, and supportable PBX system that they could easily resell, a few vocal people in the forums
have had a difference of opinion of wether or not Pro is a good fit for their business model.
Why some people feel so compelled to go off the deep end about something that they don't even want to use is really beyond me, but hey, that's the nature of the beast and we deal with it and move on.
In the end, we hope that many people do find that trixbox Pro is a better product than they are used to using and that they can make money selling it. We are not killing off trixbox CE, there has never even been a discussion of slowing down development, let alone killing it off. trixbox Pro is not for everyone and for those people, we have trixbox CE.
How will the public react to the new trixbox Pro? Who knows, it only has launched today, and within two hours we already had a first call center sell. Hopefully, that is a good sign.
