In Linux Under the Desktop I mentioned one way Linux can creep into the enterprise. Here’s another: Asterisk.

Yes, Asterisk is one of those things some people might consider a “killer app” for Linux. Ok, it runs on Mac OS X as well, but Windows support just ain’t there, so if you want Asterisk running now, you’re looking at a *nix solution…

And I know at least one company full of Windows servers who is willing to stick a Linux box in the mix just for Asterisk.

So to me, this looks like one of those “foot in the door” opportunities for Linux. I’ll be interesting to see what happens…
