OFBiz or Neogia aren't easier to use for small business.

The development model used for Neogia, when it was like opentaps, has 
been stopped with the 1.4 release. Now, it's directly based on OFBiz 
trunk, and the goal is adding functionnalities, component, or anything 
else via addons. One of the goal is having addons for each market type, 
and for localization. If you want to have a more OFBiz profession 
oriented version (data, screens, services, small modifications of the 
standard code, etc...), you can use the addonmanager.
One of the point you have to take care is to separate correctly your 
modifications. Some of the addons can be given back to OFBiz and one of 
the good pratices is to make an addon for each "commitable" feature. 
This helps a lot for tracking bugs between improvements and jira.

After, you know that I'm french, so I can help you to create a business 
addon on technical point but not on functionnal ;)
