In our company, they are doing all this stuff with sharing documents and
such. Sharepoint, I think it is. Once you start the MS path with that,
you are pretty much committed. In a company of 8000 engineers, reworking
all that document integration is not likely to happen. Unless migration
is (1) automated, (2) bullet-proof, (3) feature comparable + extras to
warrant the move in the first place, (4) makes the bean counters happy.
Is there a supported Linux alternative to Sharepoint? I mean a complete
professional supported product. Not bits and pieces the average IT
department will never get working.

I know I was looking into eGroupware.

Perhaps some components in eGroupware are also in Sharepoint. But
Sharepoint deals with the contents of documents as well as simply manage
storage. Zope had a document management system with some of these
features. It supported many document types who's contents became part of
the system.

I am not a Sharepoint user. So all the bells and whistles are unknown to

Yours sincerely,
