I rather liked 2003 era SharePoint. By comparison to SharePoint today, it was small, simple, fast, and had an excellent search. And it never, ever, ever showed a JavaScript spinner saying "please sit there twiddling your thumbs, we're working on it. Just a moment, while multi-core billion-instruction-per-second servers struggle to load a few KB of text in a reasonable time". At least, with a small one-server install, it didn't.

I had completely forgotten about SharePoint. SharePoint is the patron saint of tech debt. People throw s**t up on SharePoint or create some workflow tied to SharePoint, and it just disappears into a black hole of red tape.

SharePoint has a great enterprise search function. The problem is most companies don't setup SharePoint in the manner in which it's supposed to be used. They just stand it up OOTB and start using it, deploying department sites to the same site collection, and building up garbage single master databases. You should be tagging things, and each department should be in it's own site collection with it's own database and metadata.

SharePoint is an incredibly powerful platform/service that the competitors don't match as a whole. Wikis don't fly in many industries (I work in an FDA-regulated one, but have worked as a consultant in the past) and a significant amount of companies, IME, don't have a wiki-type workflow. Wiki is, of course, SharePoint's weak point and I don't encourage the use of the wiki. But when it comes to being an overall platform, DMS, Search service, etc. it is extremely powerful. I totally get that it is a difficult product to setup and use. I started out by ""doing it wrong"" (though ran into 32-bit limitations way back when) and it took quite some time to learn how to do things correctly. But when you get there, it's great and management/users love it.
