Yes, both are based on Asterisk. However Digium is the source of Asterisk. Fonality took the open source project their own direction. If your talking about the trixbox CE edition, you would probably be interested to know that it hasn't been updated in some time. You would be better served to use  AsteriskNow or the FreePBX edition.

Elastix.org offers a very nice FreePBX based solution with faxing capabilities integrated and paid support. Asterisk in the core of course. Its more up to date than trixbox.

Ok Excellent answers so far. So let me recap so I am clear:

Eastix and AstrixNow - is really what RedHat did to Linux. Package a free open source code with a GUI and offer support? Is there a product matrix which compares the two?

I just saw this: I am running an AsteriskNow v1.5.0 box which has FreePBX on it.

Does this mean Freepbx sits on top of Astrisknow?

Yes Starquest, FreePBX is the front end GUI for most Asterisk distributions. As for faxing, Elastix integrated Hylafax in the distribution which is why faxing works so well. This can be implemented in any Asterisk system.
