GNU, GPL, Open Source The GNU Project has announced a new project called GNU Free Call, an open source Skype alternative that will offer anonymous VoIP and will use the GNU SIP Witch server as the back end. GNU SIP Witch requires a minimum of system resources so it can be used on cell phones too so it seems the goal is to provide a cross-platform application, the immediate target most probably being Android.

I suppose you have never heard about gcc, glibc, bash, coreutils, autotools, emacs, gettext, gzip, grub, grep, cpio, readline or tar? Because those are a subset of the GNU softwares that are highly relevant to several tens of millions of people.
