In the interest of having a Linux-compatible (and possibly windows/macos compatible) version of a RC Desktop....

Would anyone be interested in being active development contributors to an open source RingCentral desktop app which could be built using:

- Electron: https://github.com/atom/electron
- Node.js: https://nodejs.org/en/
- RingCentral JS SDK: https://github.com/ringcentral/ringcentral-js
- MV* Framework of choice for group: Backbone, Angular, React, Knockout, Ember, etc...

If you are interested in this please reply to this comment, and if we have 2-3 serious developers, then I will get the ball rolling on this promptly. Hoping we can get some interest on this...it would be fun to have a community-powered desktop app for RC!
