it's also now owned by MS themselves, so how long support for non Windows
systems will remain, is anyones guess.
Linux has several good VoIP programs that could be used.
Windows also has the beutifuly small and good "IPSound". Google, and ye
shall find. (Change the default port it uses though, the default is
often probed by some particulaly nasty malware.)
Sadly, it's not suported any more, but it gives you a choice of codecs,
that you can change on-the-fly as your audio needs (near HiFi stereo, to
narrow band mono comm's channel) change, or available network resources
dictates. It's not Open Source, but you can after reading the help and
history files, then with some creative Googling, find the Open Source
IpPhone (I think) Source Forge project it was based on.
There was even one version that sort of supported CI-V commands to remote
control an Icom radio.
If I had the time, and C/C++ skill's, I'd love to pick up and run with
that app. It's just too good to let die. Making it (or something
similar) run on the Pi, would be good to have.
