I tested Liferay own locally hosted demo, available here. If it can not be an indication of how easy or difficult it is to create your own server, the demo was very easy to use as an end user, especially since I have not read or as supporting documentation in advance. I intend to use it to organize a collaborative writing blog I can, because the authors in question are usually not advanced users, and a benefit system is intuitive, pick-up-and-go ease.

collaboration features include almost everything you can imagine, including wikis, calendars, forums, blog, polls, and integrated chat. Liferay Social Office, which is what they call their Collaboration Suite also integrates with Microsoft Office, then you have the opportunity to work on your desktop if you do not want to sign the gate. Sometimes, the isolation has its advantages after all.

Liferay has a client list of small but impressive, including World Vision, Lufthansa, Crisco, and the GOP House Conference Republican. Liferay Standard Edition is a free download available under the MIT Open Source License, and Enterprise Edition is available for pre-order, which provides stability and long term support and additional features.
