OpenGoo is a Web-based office productivity suite that attempts to deliver the online benefits of better-known rivals, such as Google Apps and Zoho Office, without the "our way or the highway" hosting limitations of those services. OpenGoo is released under an open-source license, and it will run on any LAMP server. For organizations that prefer a hosted option, OpenGoo is available as a subscription service under the name Feng Office. eWEEK Labs found that while OpenGoo falls short of its cloud-based competition in overall functionality, the suite's deployment flexibility and knack for knitting together promising open-source Web office components make OpenGoo worth keeping an eye on.
