I likely would have anyway, as the open source model appeals to me and I see no real difference between the two, other than user base.  The gizmo client works wonderfully well thus far, with only the answer bug on the free callin number.  I bought a local number, and that works great, ringing my 770 and mobile phone simultaneously.

their customer service or phfft they'll be gone.
