Alfresco Open Source Edition

There's a comment here that says:
That, in turn, implies that the community versions are somewhat crippled, either intentionally or by omission, which I don't think was your point.

Whether that was the intention of the author (Matt Asay, VP of Alfresco) or not, it's true.  The open source version of Alfresco is riddled with bugs unless you're using it strictly as a subversion replacement.  Attempting to use any feature besides the core functionality will make you encounter javascript bugs and a vast documentation void.  There is no point to the Alfresco Open Source Edition existing.  If I had no kids, I would fork the project out of spite.  Instead, I just stopped using it about 6 months ago.  There is no free lunch, but there's lots of free bait.  Alfresco Community Edition is just bait.
