Yeah FOSS can do anything, just "not yet" ;-)

It's the same in the ERP world, looking an Compiere, tinyERP, etc. :-(.
And the "interesting" combinations of free and non-free things...
Yeah lot of companies seem to use FOSS as advertising "Our Free GPL
blabla" and with a closer look all the good features are closed source.
B.t.w., not sure why RH has not yet put (al least not visible) some
of their resources on properly packaging something like OGo, as
groupware would be a welcome addition to RHEL too and I think it
*is* doable, although it will cost some effort.
Yeah especially now Fedora has a great Directory Server and with the
upcoming Samba 4 the next thing missing is a good groupware/ERP. These
would be the perfect features for a small business, and if those
businesses grow they are perfect clients for Red Hat.
Maybe RH should not only look for someone to manage Evolution but at the
same time someone for OGo and make them work together so Evolution
integrates perfectly with OGo.
