Of course.  All our systems run Debian.

Local pops all over the world for this system will not happen.
Customers using their PC's to make a call will not happen.  Customers
will pick up a phone and make a call, or sit at their PC and send an
e-mail.  Of course, VOIP streams are the same as analog ports to us,
we just do the state engine and the application, but as of yet, no
demand for commerce over VOIP, and rightly so.  If you are worried
about tolls/tarrifs to the U.S., and want to use VOIP, there are a
half dozen companies offering free temination to the local loop in the
U.S.  Try dialpad or net2phone.  

The phone system and the transaction manager are both ambitious.  We
should probably think of some way to start smaller, maybe a Debian
Consultants Coalition Website or something, with a little cgi script
to "Find a consultant near you".  When we get a little more
organized, or if we had a corporate sponso, we could figure out transactions.
