OPEN QUESTION: Are Team Collaboration Tools mostly just glorified filesystems?

So it occured to me that every few years we reinvent the wheel in enterprise filesharing. Workgroups used to "collaborate" by dropping files into a shared network folder. Then there came Exchange Public Folders and Notes document libraries. Then there were complicated document management systems. Now there's Quickr and Sharepoint.


Iā€™m always in search of different ways to accomplish the tasks I regularly perform in Lotus Notes. To that end, a search of CMS tools that would enable me to build on a basic substrate (read: Document type) and extend in exciting new ways brought me to Drupal back in the 2006 timeframe.
