An anecdote for you.
I've managed a small Alfresco deployment (about 20 seats) for nearly
I really like it, especially some of the work-flow features.
Unfortunately most of my target user-base have been less enthused. Many
of them found it confusing and difficult to use, preferring to just dump
documents into a directory :^( Fortunately Alfresco supports that mode
of operation to some extent. I found that the more computer-literate the
user the less inclined they were to like it. Our non-engineering users
all liked it and used it well.
