I use it on day to day basis and also have the web based account. This
one wins by leaps and bounds, if you want a ISO compliant project

 Sucks the most. Completely unusable UI and confusing navigation.

 Are you joking or did you try the commercial version ? Try deleting
the cache directory and enjoy the show (i hope they have fixed this
problem by now). Also very difficult to customize. Documentation for
writing module is not clear but they offer a course for few thousand
dollars on module writing.

 Agreed. Comes close to a usable CRM but again, difficult to write
modules and an unnecessary flashy UI.

 Good for small installations.

 All three are good products and have advertised the capabilities
properly. But basecamp is limited to basic activities only.

The hidden harmony is better than the obvious!!
