A week or so ago I posted a request for suggestions for a Linux alternative
to MS SharePoint. I didn't get much in the way of responses, so I've had to
do some research myself.
Well I started with MS. I downloaded demo of MS Server 2007 and SharePoint
2007. Once burned to DVD I installed it on a new leftover computer with a
new hard drive.
1.5 hours later I had an intranet up and running, with document sharing,
discussion board, email, calendar sharing and document collaboration. I
added the 25 people to the domain, and it's been being tested for that past
5 days. Easy and I never had to look at a manual or a book, it recognized
all the hardware, took the IP address and all that kind of stuff. Haven't
calculated cost yet, but we are eligible to education discount. I figure
this weekend I'll look into security issues and then take the next step.
Linux alternatives. Oh and the VPN is through the router so I didn't have
to look into that kind of stuff at this level.
