It's a little bit of work to set up initially, but it works well. Open source development. Lot's of plug-ins to extend functionality.

Quicker install using a "stack": http://bitnami.org

Almost a one-click installation, but has a larger footprint and may not be as easy to extend functionality in the future.

X2CRM and OpenERP are also included as "stacks", but I have not used them and can't comment. Check out the forums for these packages, because that is where you will spend your time searching for answers on configuration and adding functionality.

OpenERP and Open Business Management is in the Ubuntu repositories:
