You assume that other professions don't have "appreciation days" when, in fact, they do. Also, you appear to think that SAs believe that they are more deserving than other professions. While I don't doubt that there are plenty of admins out there that hold an arrogant view like that, I also believe that the majority of professional sysadmins don't. I don't begrudge my boss bosses day, or our administrative assistant's secretaries day. It's just nice to be appreciated.

+ - Is trixbox Pro bad for the community?->

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "Recently a company called Fonality bought the trademark rights to trixbox, which used to be called Asterisk@Home. Now they've released a product they call "trixbox Pro" which, unlike other Free and Open Source vendors who also have a commercial offering, is a completely different, closed source codebase that is based on their PBXtra product, and not based on what up until now has just been known simply as "trixbox."

This doesn't sit well with me for a variety of reasons, but I'd like to get the opinions of Slashdot community members on this. They appear to be operating within the letter of the GPL, but not the spirit. Are they going to plow the profits made on trixbox Pro back into trixbox Pro and ignore the community that uses and supports what they're now calling trixbox CE? Obviously there's no way to predict that, but we can certainly make an attempt. Have other vendors gone down this path and still made good on their community responsibilities? Any spectacular failed attempts?"
