Hi Benjamin, all

It worked pretty well in my usage, I'd use it again.

This is not even similar to Google Docs or IBM Docs. Zimbra Docs is a "a
WYSIWYG tool for creating, sharing, and publishing documents online - and
note that this includes spreadsheets as well as word processing documents."

Yes, it is much closer to Google Docs than you think.

I couldn't find a lot about word processing but what I did find looked more
like a Rich Text editor. The "spreadsheet" is really a 6 columns by 10 lines
Table. Naming that a "spreadsheet" is a little overkill...

This screenshot showing 6x10 cells does not mean that's all the app can do. I recall using it for 
much more than that.

In addition the Open Source version is a limited version of the paid one (I
really feel cheated with this trick...) 

It's an annoying trick when companies do this. I don't know if Zimbra reduces the feature set, or 
if they just don't offer support for the open source version.

If you are serious about evaluating existing competitors in this space and want to carry out real 
due diligence, you need to download and install the Zimbra open source version to experiment with 
it. The installation I used was set up by our IT team, and I don't know how they configured it, 
what add-ons they may have installed, whether we were using the open source or closed source 
versions, etc. 

I'll be happy to help you. Do you have a server or VM that we could use to test?
