no question that voip is the way to go, conventional PBXs are hardly ever
used for new installations these days. i'd strongly suggest looking at an
asterisk based system using conventional sip phones. it's powerful,
flexible, reliable, relatively inexpensive, and totally open source.
full disclaimer: my company provides turn-key asterisk setups (as well as
many other linux-based solutions). ping me offline if you'd want to talk.
