Just asterisk. I want to be able to able to handle sip and AIX phones, and connect to other asterisk 
servers (including public operators-. So far I used sheeva plug computers as asterisk servers with 
usb sticks as disks, but it is not very reliable en a bit limited. I'd prefer to add this to an 
openidiana box hugely more reliable and powerfull.

I installed one of these sheeva boxes at home an another in a university in west africa. Both died. 
and phoning the guys down there over asterisk is a lot cheaper than over the traditional phone !
