Alternative to Google Docs

TimFarren used Ask the Experts™
Can anyone suggest a product similar to Google Docs that we can host interally on our own servers?  

We've considered SharePoint, but don't really like the way it's designed.  Are there any other alternatives?

Personally, I'm a fan of Google docs and Sharepoint. How long and how in depth have you used both solutions? The more you become familiar with it, the more it grows on you.

Regardless, here are some alternatives, let me know what you think.


I'm checking out the link now..

Yes, I'm fine with SharePoint.  The issue is that the company I work for has used Google Docs for so long that they really like it, although they would like an in house solution.  I've been an IT guy for 15 or so years now, and really dislike the huge push for cloud computing.  It's beginning to be the end of an era where IT folks can make a good living selling and integrating servers.  Pretty soon it will all be the way of the dinosaur and people will just have internet connections to huge monopoly companies like Google and Microsoft.  That will be a sad day in my view and it's coming.

Thanks for the info..
