the strengths of Bayonne:
- Runs on Dialogic, Pika and other widely available hardware
- extremely reliable, mine never crashes
and here are the weaknesses:
- nowhere near as active of a support community as Asterisk has
- configuration of the hardware/drivers is a nightmare compared to Asterisk/Digium
- it is quite limited in it's included apps, IVR and voicemail
- not as many options for scripting as Asterisk
- it was not designed to have full PBX functionality, some PBX functionality is added as afterthought
- the code/organization/flow is not as well thought out or documented as Asterisk is
