My company with 20+ employees is in dire need of a DMS. Currently they have nothing, not even a shared folder. Has to be open source.

I'd like it to have dropbox-like capabilities, integrated into work desktops but accessible from home computers. Access controls on a file by file basis, not just at the folder level like some I've used. CIFS and/or WebDAV with some kind of SSL is pretty much essential.

I'm thinking about using Alfresco, as it can tie in with LDAP and Kerberos and looks pretty slick. Has anyone used it? Any other recommendations?

We trialed Alfresco and SharePoint, eventually went the SharePoint route as almost everyone has MS workstations and I'm sure some politics played a part too. However we now kind of wish we had used Alfresco instead and are making some attempt to use that or something else.

Yea Alfresco if you want to go the open source route or sharepoint. TBH your probably too small for something like Oracle.

If your just after shared folders you thought about implementing an active directory domain controller with file sharing? Can be as simple as running a VPS or dedicated server with site to site VPNs (assuming you have multiple sites). You'll also get heaps of other advantages like centralized authentication and computer management.
