I successfully used asterisk to dial from both Windows and Linux clients,
especially web browsers.

How to do it?
1. install and configure asterisk: free & open source pbx with many 
SIP, IAX, ISDN (some included some as add-ons): http://www.asterisk.org/
2. install web server
3. make simple cgi script that creates call file for asterisk:
4. call that cgi script from your application with simple HTTP query

We replaced our old plain PBX with much more configurable asterisk.
