I learned about this at GigaOM site and tried to call him by his name! Did not work.
The Gizmo Project and the Sipphone Inc have brought out an web based (well Flash based) dialer that does not work on all computers. It will work with any browser that supports Adobe flash and a flash plugin from Gizmocall. Windows works, Linux not, Mac OS X did not try yet.
As I recall Similar application, Jajah did not have this problem. I could run it from my Linux box, which I started using more and more since Uncle Bill at Microsoft started to peek into what you are doing through his windows running on YOUR computer.
On Linux computer you get the following message;
Gizmo Call does not yet work on Linux computers. We like Linux and we use Linux and we’re going to make Gizmo Call work for Linux. Adobe just recently released Flash 9 for Linux which Gizmo Call requires which is why we have been delayed in releasing Linux support for Gizmo Call. You may want to try the Linux version of Gizmo Project available at http://gizmoproject.com which works on most Linux distributions. You can also try the Nokia n800 Linux tablet which runs Linux and Gizmo Project. Go Linux!!
Well I had Gizmo on the notebook already.
Anyway it seems a good project and allowing web, email and blog embedding the call to your phone is a goo idea. Bellow is sample.
Test Gizmocall;(it will take you to gizmo test call;

So having partyline is also a good idea but having to download and install plugin is something that I do not like to do. It might be the case with most other people too.
