    The figure for MS SharePoint appears to be way wrong. Even the OpenText article that you linked to claims that SharePoint is at 62%.

    Great List. Thanks for pulling this together. A lot of the decent open source solutions are missing, but given the theme of the site, that’s understandable.

    For example, caucho resin is a very high volume application server that works incredibly well. OpenOffice is just as capable as Microsoft’s offering and continues to gain significant market share.

    Davo, I re-read the articles and think you got a little confused. Exchange posts 62% market share (as linked to above), but the linked article only shows Sharepoint at 1.6%. I personally think that number is probably low, but can’t find any figures to back that up. Any articles or reports you can shoot me would be very helpful!

    Thanks for following up!
