Where is SIP?   


What do you think, why is Skype so popular on desktops and route milions of landline and mobile minutes?

Why are non-standard voip clients (Skype, MSN, Yahoo, etc)  present on every desktop but SIP is nowhere?

I have tried a lots of sip client application (almost all present on the market today). But i''m not happy with any of them. They are either too slow, consuming all cpu resources, either ugly -this is the case with most open source or java based software- or they are just not compatibile with my asterisk.

I think that the problem is that people don't have a user friendly sip application that just works.

I don't say that mizu softphone is perfect  ...but we are working on it :)
