AsteriskNow vs TrixBox

 I am in the process of converting my company's phone system from PSTN to 
VOIP.  I looked at Trixbox and AsteriskNow.  I tried both of the bootable 
CDs and only AsteriskNow was able to connect to my works Windows DHCP 
server. I spoke to a VOIP provider and they told me that trixbox is a much 
better system and that I would have to do a lot of work to get AsteriskNow 
to work properly.  I like AsteriskNow.  It seems more open source to me. 

I work for a small company with 8 employees and a fax.  We have two phone 
numbers (our main number and our fax number) that we want to transfer.  We 
only need a basic phone system.  It would be nice to transfer and forward 
calls.  We would get some type of inexpensive ( < $100 ) SIP phones. 

What is your opinion.  Would if be much effort to set up AsteriskNow as 
opposed to Trixbox to handle our simple needs.  What is a good VOIP 
provider.  We would probably elect to change our expensive ($200/month) 
internet provider which is the same as the provider for our telephone 
system.  We still have a lease with our phone/internet provider.  What are 
the best ways to negotiate a lease termination.  I spoke to one VOIP 
provider and was told that they were able to transfer our phone and fax 
number to their service. 
I would appreciate any suggestions.
