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.

That's good to know. I agree SIP (and H.323) are just not good enough in the 21st century. It was and still is not straight forward to implement at home or at work. The fact that VoIP providers still don't route calls between themselves is amazing. The idea of having a universal phone number or alias that anyone can call from any provider is way off.

Maybe I read you wrong, but aren't you describing Google Voice? Or VoxOx?
