For those interested in really 'businessy' sorts of things, one system to keep an eye on is OFBiz, at http://www.ofbiz.org. It's a system with modules for accounting, ecommerce, CRM, content management, warehouse management, manufacturing, and so on. But more than that, it's a flexible toolkit and community of developers who deal with those sorts of problems every day, which makes it a good group to learn from and share ideas with.
It is a relatively heavy duty Java app, which isn't everyone's cup of tea, but Java does seem to be strong for the sorts of things the application does.
(Disclaimer: I'm helping them become part of the Apache Software Foundation, but don't really have any other direct interests in the project).
