Idk, I felt it was a little rude the way it was written.
No I’m not angry, I thought you are heading in the wrong direction and wanted to make you aware of that.
No, you don’t lecture a Sangoma employee about their product, and you don’t rant about one time ads, when trying to learn how a product works.
You got this wrong.
We’re not here to discourage people from using FreePBX. We’re here to help people, get this project going etc.
But the way you posted your questions/rant/lecture it seemed to me that you have no clue anything about SIP/FreePBX, so you should first get your hands a little dirty to understand whats up with this piece of software and come back to ask questions.
Again, we encourage people to ask, report, discuss issues here, in fact this community is one of the most active telephony related forums on the internet.
Finally, yes you can succeed with providing service with FreePBX, but as Tom said, it’s not little work with easy money.
When phones are down people freak out! It depends how much clients and what hours your clients are operating but in most cases it’s a “be available 24/7” job.
Much luck with whatever you, and let us know if there’s anything else we can assist you with
