We use both SharePoint and iBuySpy, internally and externally

To debunk the overkill thing, we are <10 people, and conversely, we use
iBuySpy for a couple thousand users.

SharePoint: works almost 100% perfectly out of the box, for our needs.
Ymmv. 'cept I _HATE_ (yes, I shouted) using FrontPage to mod the themes.

iBuySpy: great fundamental starting point to create large portal apps.

Good luck!
