I am already hearing some news that the next version of iphone ( I mean Apple’s iphone) is going to have VoIP support ( probably a SIP client). That could be possible. Or even crazier, a Cisco Call Manager on a Mac? Cisco latest release , 5.0 , runs on Linux and the next version 6.0 is going to give an option to the user whether he wants Windows/Linux. Would 7.0 give an option of a MAC installation? Nah, i don’t think so either but that would be interesting.

Write to me as to where you see the synergies.
