Short Take: Quicknet embraces Linux

Quicknet Technologies has released software that enables Linux computers to use the company's telephony products, the company said. The products let telephone communications take place over computer networks, a technology called "voice over IP," which lets people set up services such as voice mail, company phone networks and telephone connections using the Internet. The software was released under the Gnu General Public License, which lets anyone modify and use the software.
