  • 24. “So we believe the pairing of open source software and cloud based business models vastly increases the commercial potential of open source software” “Open VBX takes that model and adds something more. Yes, there will be hosted versions of Open VBX. Dreamhost already offers a one click install of Open VBX. But Twilio's telephony APIs for phone calls, messaging, and more are paid offerings that plug into Open VBX and offer another business model for open source software.” - Fred Wilson
