Can you give me an order of magnitude of the number of pure voip calls
without transcoding?
Something like 10 000 concurrent calls?
I already love the idea of a freeswitch cluster. :-)

Documentation was not the reason of my view (I don't consider asterisk
doc particularly good anyway).
My view was mainly because of the first release still approaching
(Freeswitch Release Candidate 1), being a slackware linux lover I got
used to stability concerns.
However I understand that freeswitch at the moment could be more robust
than asterisk despite the release number (some people restart asterisk
on production environments over time, just in case ;-).
