3CX VoIP System

I have been testing out the 3CX VoIP system for windows over the last 2 weeks.
I would have to say that I like it very much.
I tried out Asterisk, but there were just to many risks with that and lots of reading to do.

I like that so many things are already configured and all you have to do is run a wizard.
I also like that it runs on Windows and that I don't have to mess with Linux.
I am a former SGI IRIX administrator, but it's been years and I have forgot most of that.

I took me 2 days, but I figured out how to make my inter-tel 8622 VoIP phone work with 3CX in SIP mode. (I posted my work on the forum at 3CX)
It's kind of limited, so I might still sell the 8622 on ebay and just get a Polycom Soundstream IP 330. That phone looks the best to me for the job. Price is around $119 and it has two ports so that I don't need a switch at every desk.

Interfacing the 3CX with Exchange 2007 UM was easy! I had it done in about 15 minutes.
