Response to: PBX vs PC based Asterisk
I must be blunt: Your thinking with respect to comment 1) is completely backwards. With respect to "esoteric services", Asterisk is superior to any closed PBX. Far from the "very basic call control" you mention, Asterisk allows a level of control that only the most expensive IVR scripting engines can dare to contemplate. While a proprietary PBX may claim to have dozens or even hundreds of so-called features, Asterisk is essentially limitless. I have yet to find a PBX that does not present a brick wall at some point; typically when the needs and/or creativity exceed the box that the PBXs designers have placed it in. With Asterisk, any limits that exist are merely milestones. If there's a need, it's a safe bet that someone is already pushing it to the next level.
