What does sharepoint do, that private wiki or peer2peer systems 
do not?

What facilities does sharepoint offer that cannot be reproduced
by Apache/Perl/PHP and so on?

We have sharepoint here and all it seems to be is some sort of repository
for uploading word documents.    I tried searching on unique terms
that I knew existed in the docs, but it returned no results, so I do not think 
it's indexing is particularly good.

Of course I am on Solaris and so only seeing it from the perspective 
of a web browser.
