Such as: http://sourceforge.net/projects/sugarcrm ?

For this conversation to progress usefully, we need to know the answer to this

What does the proprietary version of SugarCRM Professional support that:
a) the open-source version does not
b) we actually need

If there's something specific, we might have a hope of actually comparing
alternatives. As it is, we've got an experimental internal installation of the
*open-source* SugarCRM for those who would be using it to figure out whether
they can make it do what they need.
