I'm looking for some kind of web based collaboration software. It has to be clientless, or at least, offer a clientless version with full functionality.

I've seen Lotus Notes, and while the windows interface is reasonable, the web interface blows goats. Plus, you can't really decouple it successfully from the absolute dogshit mailserver.

I really like the look of Web Office but the information we'll be passing back and forth is a little to proprietary and private to trust the hosting to a 3rd party.

We're an open source shop, so anything produced by microsoft is going to be treated with disdain.

What about phpGroupWare? Anybody tried that?

It sounds silly, but an internal wiki is a good place to start, to see if there is sufficient buy-in.

What capabilities are you looking for? File sharing? Real-time chat? Message baords?

Primarily, Group Calendaring and Resource (like conference room) scheduling.

Secondary, document sharing and mini discussion board type features.
