"OpenOffice.org, Microsoft Office, Feng Office – which is the odd one out? Yes, it's Feng Office, but not because most people have never heard of it, and not because it lacks the extreme feature set of the other two. Feng Office is not about sitting at your desk writing office documents, it's about collaborative working.

"Feng still allows you to create text documents online, but that's just a small part of running projects, taking notes, tracking tasks, passing milestones, keeping contact with your organisation and perusing reports of how the projects are progressing.

"Feng Office, formerly known as OpenGoo, is licensed under the GNU Affero General Public License, the FOSS licence especially created for cloud software – this means that modifications must be made available for all web users of the service, guaranteeing sharing of improvements and new modules. You can sign up to a hosted account and be running the trial version in minutes, but we'll show you how to install on your own server, from download to up-and-running."
