Chrome is Free Software right? Surely I've got that right?
(only joking not trolling)


WebRTC is here, now.

Google launched Chrome 25 with built-in WebRTC support on Monday, 25
February. Within 24 hours, /DruCall/ <http://www.drucall.org>, an
easy-to-use WebRTC module for Drupal was available Free as a shiny new
GPL project.

While this technology offers a level of convenience for end-users that
is unprecedented, just what is involved for the keen server
administrator who wants to deploy this today?

With 20-30% of web users expected to be running WebRTC browsers within 3
months (due to automatic updates), and 60-70% by Christmas, will the
free software community be able to seize this opportunity to redefine
the way real-time communications is deployed?

I've whipped together a brief architecture diagram to answer those
questions, demonstrating how all core components can be built with free
software, today. All but one of these components is conveniently
packaged in stable Linux distributions like Debian
<http://www.debian.org> and Ubuntu <http://www.ubuntu.com>. The full
diagram is taken from the /DruCall/ web site
<http://www.drucall.org/architecture> where you can find more details:
