feedback reqest: jitsi, and Ostel.co

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

Dear kind sir,

I know this isn't VPN related, however it does fall under infosec nontherless;

    1) Can you comment on Jitsi (coded in Java) as a viable alternative to Skype and

    2) Ostel.co is offering free "shiny" VoIP in partnership. Any advise and comment?

Thank you in advance from Malaysia. My ISP generously offers me ADSL of 2Mbps for ~USD20.80 in 2016. Their kindness is overwhelming! I'm searching in vain for a free dial-up modem instead. Sigh.

In case you'd not seen already, there's some feedback on your questions coming in via a pointer to this thread from twitter, which someone took the liberty of creating this morning:

Jitsi is a piece of sh*t in my experience, buggy as all hell, unreliable, devs insist on ridiculous amounts of logging enabled by default, dependence on client server architecture, etc etc.

Save your time and grief and go with Tox as a Skype replacement instead, I've had great success using it with non-technical users.

Can't comment on ostel.co, have not messed with it since way back when the Guardian project was experimenting using it as a backend for their zrtp sip clients on Android.
