Need a really cheap CRM

I look at this list and see what I thought were low prices, but I thought "users" were admins. I expect to have thousands of sales people, maybe 10,000 even, paying perhaps a $10/month fee. And most of that fee needs to go to cover my management costs, not the costs of my CRM service.

I guess I just don't get the pricing. Are salesmen users? If so, only this one works:

Even Really Simple Systems costs $8 per user.

I seriously think I need that open source option where all I need to do is host it. Sugar, the predecessor to SugarCRM. Please tell me about that one. And is it difficult to support it?

Can any of these help me?

I use ZohoCRM for my consulting biz. Pricing is decent (free if you have 10 or fewer users), features aren't anything like Salesforce.

You can, however, get a Salesforce Developer account for free. Just sign up for it. Though, I wouldn't use that account for business work.

I could never pay an annual subscription. I may have thousands of users (salesmen) and I only want to charge them $10 / month for the service. This is a major money loser unless I can find some open source solution.

SugarCRM has a free version, from what I hear. Know it?

You could try sourceforge.net for opensource CRM solutions. I have not used SugarCRM.

So, are these free downloads that are free to use? I am very cost conscious since my sales people can only pay $10/month and I need that revenue steam.
