Welcome to FreeSWITCH! We think you'll like it. Just remember that it's

It's a place where you can get a frame of reference. If you've worked with

If you want a gentle intro to installing and setting up FS then check out
this article:

Note: the article mentions version 1.0.4 but we're really close to 1.0.5. We
strongly recommend everyone, especially experienced users, to use the latest
SVN trunk as it is almost always the most stable version of FS.

Lastly, be sure to check out the getting started guide and the installation
guide on the wiki. (www.freeswitch.org) The quick-and-dirty install guide is
good for those who now Linux and just want to jump right in.
