Open source alternative to Google and Microsoft cloud collaboration tools

Like the idea of having a cloud office suite, but not crazy about being locked into Microsoft Office 365 or Google Docs software-as-a-service (SaaS) ? Two open-source companies, ownCloud and Kolab Systems, are working on enabling an office suite for your own private cloud.

Kolab, like ownCloud, is using Collabora’s cloud version of the open-source LibreOfficeoffice suite, Collabora CloudSuite. The desktop version of LibreOffice is my favorite office suite.

Soon these tools will ready to go and we can finally have real control over out data.

The article recommends you run your own server in your house to have the best control over your data. With a server you can control email and run your own secure storage cloud. Not a bad idea.
