I used SharePoint for 3 months at my last contract job. The neat thing
about it is that you can do keyword searches for items. That is, you
don't have to try to understand somebody else's folder hierarchy and
naming conventions to find something. On the downside, we had trouble
getting others to contribute to the SharePoint repository because the
interface for contributing an item has a lot of options that (I think)
intimidate people. But those of us who did use it liked the
check-in/check-out features, and the option to be automatically notified
when someone added a new item.

Xerox's DocuShare (not free) has a great searching feature, and it is
much easier to use. (Xerox did invent GUI after all.)
