I think you are talking about Vadaxchange, based on an asterisk platform but modified by the Vadacom engineers with hardware that they supply
As you and I know, when you deploy anything on an inferior hardware platform it doesn't play nicely with the software and there is not really much support from either the hardware manufacturer or the software developer. The majority of installs I see that have gone belly up have been done on the basis of free software on old underspec'd hardware.
As a business you want to be focused on what you do best and making money. Unreliable Comms are expensive and still unreliable.
In the many cases I have helped with we have deployed hardware and software from the same manufacturer.
1 point of contact for all support
Resolution of issues 100%
Long product life cycle
Minimal support costs

Of course not good if you are an IT company looking for a revenue stream,

I'm guessing (uneducated) 2talk probably one of the biggest in NZ using Asterisk
I think the point here is that Asterisk can be ridiculously powerful and stable, however unless you're an expert it can go wrong. I spent several days battling with phones going offline for no apparent reason after changing some settings to try and resolve why BLF (busy lights) wern't working on our phones after switching to Asterisk v11, which was to see if it would help resolve a one way audio issue after transferring calls. As you can see trying to fix BLF on one phone it turned into a much bigger job!

Returning to the original thread though, sounds like your NUC has some reliability issues, if you still want to run FreePBX could try it on an old laptop (maybe with a broken screen if you can find one for cheap).. probably run fine on a P4 or Core Duo right?
Otherwise could give 3CX a try, runs on Windows and much easier to deal with any stability issues then, 3CX looks pretty good and gives you 2 simultaneous calls for free. But see how you get on with Hosted 2talk and let us know if you have any questions
