Goodness knows I would love it.  I merely take a 6hp shop vac and move it from tool to tool as I use it.  I mostly own Delta and Ryobi for price reasons and my Belt, drum sanders, and router table all have built in attachments for the vacuum hook up. No where near the cleanliness the vacuum system offers but works pretty well.  I made a plywood encasing for the bottom of my table saw to attach the vacuum to it.  The trick to the system is the piping hook up.  Some day when I am rich and famous.. maybe

The dust system link that you posted looks like it would do a good job. The only real draw back is the fact that it is a 120v. motor. Do the offer it in a 240v. version ? Then it would cost 1/2 as much to operate.

I have one about like that, but after using it for a while I ditched the bags and just ran an exhaust pipe out back of the shop.  You would think that you would quickly have a giant heap of sawdust, but it hasn't really been a problem.  No more bag emptying and it runs at full suction all the time.  Anyone who does much woood working needs some kind of dust collection to keep it out of the lungs.

I purchased one from Penn State Industries several years ago. It has worked well for me. I have no real complaints about it. You sure can notice the difference when you use it.

I have two Reliant dust collectors in the shop, one similar to that picture, the other a floor model.
Most of those have induction motors that you can convert to 220V. They work well, better in 220V.
The piping I got from home depot (rigid makes it), I thought it was going to be kinda cheesy, but it works really well, come with gates and clear tubes, really easy to work with. then I added some hoses, all kinds of fitting to all power tools, it makes life much more enjoyable in the shop.
One I have set up so that it comes on when the table saw turns on., the other connected to all that piping.
