Most of these good reviews appear to be fake to boost the rating. Not really open source.

Shocking! How could any of those reviewers be real?! Firstly, it is not a small program, secondly, it is not easy to use, thirdly, it isn't just a "program" or "tool", it's much more complicated than that. Having to have to provide support to a user base for this sub-standard product I can vouch that it is neither simple nor easy to use. It is full of bugs, report them to support and all they do is either deny it's a problem or put it in a list of issues to address (that will never get addressed anyway). It has lots of good ideas, sure, but NONE of them are finished. They're all hacked together so that they look like they're working, at least when the sales guy comes in to present them, but they don't. Website content management is a joke - it would be more reliable to edit HTML files in notepad over FTP. The security system sucks - to change some settings you need to be an administrator. Unfortunately being an administrator gives you full access to everything, including spaces that users believe are "confidential". This makes sense for administrators, but not for users who need access to change a setting. All the stuff that they copy off sharepoint (edit offline, CFS) doesn't work, or if it does work, it only works sometimes. The best way to get files into the system is over FTP, webdav sometimes works, CIFS can bomb out or deny access randomly. The web interface always sets the wrong MIME type on some files (html, video) after upload. But it is not simply a "tool" or "program", it's one big freaking huge monolith packed with half finished features. It's a DIY skyscraper. Like a programmer watched someone build a cubby house on "better homes and gardens" and decided to build a aircraft carrier following the same logic. The open source part of it is a joke. The community code is unmaintained and doesn't remotely match what is being used in the enterprise version. Try tracing down errors by following the stack dump with the files in the community branch and you'll find literally thousands of lines missing. ONLY if you and your staff are happy with this product you should move to Enterprise. If you are using community and finding issues, DO NOT take the recommendation that you should move to Enterprise - and do not think for a SECOND that the costs are cheaper than sharepoint. It takes on average THREE DAYS to upgrade Alfresco, and it's all done by hand! Sharepoint is a matter of running an EXE file. DONE. The cost of maintainance, storage, beefier server hardware needed to run this monolith, plus the cost of at least 2-3 people to support it, PLUS a consultant, PLUS the license fee, you might as well move to sharepoint and just be happy to pay the extra $$$ just so you don't have to support the blooming thing. I would not rate this product highly, and take the short reviews with a grain of salt. You should be worried about a company that has to post FAKE REVIEWS to bolster their product rating!
