We're just a little five person shop with a Panasonic KXTD-816 
mini-pbx  (with more & better features than big Rolm, Lucent, Mitel, etc 
systems, but that's for another list...)  The MOH is just  analog mono 
cabled from the sound card to the Panasonic.  FreeBSD is only acting as a 
not-so-portable IPod in this case.

I've looked at the Asterisk web site, but haven't used the software at 
all.  VOIP looks like the only way to go for new installations, and being 
able to do it open-source is very attractive too.  Might put one in the 
home someday.
