One line that caught my eye (emphasis mine):

But Alfresco’s customers significantly skew toward the Global 2000 plus leading government and nonprofit organizations: ….. European Commission, …. etc.

It’s possible that these organizations represent the lunatic fringe of the software-using world but, in fact, many of these would generally be considered late adopters or mainstream adopters.

Interesting, particularly following the rumours of the EC’s use of Office 2007. Looks like they don’t necessarily fall into the late, or mainstream adopters category.
