I don't have any particular software recommendations, I've been paid to install Toshiba, Siemens, Alcatel, FreePBX, and they all have up and down sides... but I can heartily recommend Aastra phones, they are reliable and cost effective.

I tried trixbox and found it not to be very easy to configure. I would go with SIP trunks rather then additional lines and the digital interface. All runs over Ethernet.

Lots of suggestions on hardware but what about infrastructure such as switches, trunked links, VLANs and QOS?
If you intend to use VoiP as your primary means of telephony and share your bandwidth with hundreds of other users you need to address this in the early stages of deployment.

I would hope that most people had already fixed up their Layer 3 and had decent a decent infrastructure with managed switches, VLANs, etc, before they got to the point of considering VoIP.

One nice advantage of using Cisco, apply a "Desktop" port macro and it will configure the QOS etc so the only thing to do is designate the Data vlan and voice vlan numbers.

The cisco also knows there is a phone on the end of the wire thanks to CDP.
