On the good side, Zentyal is based on Ubuntu which has a nice and predictable release schedule.
Long after we started working with ClearOS, Zentyal chose to remove lots of functionality, including the web server.
In contrast, the WikiSuite project has lead to multiple enhancements to ClearOS as a web server (ex: Let's Encrypt, PHP version selection, better configs, better handling of multiple sites, etc.)
