I also am curious to hear feedback on either asterisknow and/or trixbox.
I am looking to install a few boxes in locations that people need to be
able to add extensions (queues, etc), but might not be avid linux users.
I could write my own gui, but why bother. A nice easy installation and
extension/queue/voicemail management system would be nice.
