... I haven't posted for a while here - not because I have some new VoIP favorite - but because Jitsi has worked without flaws.
- I plan to use Jitsi as a simple tool for remote maintainance with one of my clients. They asked me why I propose installing Beta status software.(*)
Given the current quality, Jitsi deserves at least 1.0 status - also in comparison with other popular software. Nothing is completely error free and beeing overly cautios - we would never reach "production" status.
(check out Mozilla Firefox and their advancing number scheme, they don't seem to care)
- We also installed VLC Player (www.videolan.org) in that session - and the download/install process was much clearer for a newbee/non techie:
-- Why installing older versions? Please just put the actual stable version upfront and a link to "other versions" to satisfy the software acheologists.
-- Videolan, Mozilla and LibreOffice detect the operating system from the browser's request string. Not always accurate but a good guess for 99% of all cases. (again: a link to "other operating system" would serve the remaining 1%)
Hope that helps
(*) one of the banks I did an IT project with, has a policy not to install Beta software. They gave me a hard time with Freemind, which was in 0.9beta_xx for ages with a predecessor version some 4-5 years old by then lacking a lot of needed features. I had to keep up with that regardless of a very stable "Beta 26 or something" available. Release Please!! CB
