I'm concerned with their lack of an Open Source strategy.

See this thread on their Tool Developer forum:

The UI seems a little confused. Within an individual tool, things can change out from under you very rapidly, without your having a sense that another user in your group is really "there." This can be very disorienting. Also, some of the tools have their own UI problems (ahem**outliner**ahem).

The other problem is... well... it seems like they've built a Batmobile and put a nanny chip on it that only lets you do 35, you know? It's got all this great peer-to-peer technology in it, but the default package of tools only lets you use it as a sort of secure-ICQ-on-steroids. I hope that third-party development takes off and we start to see Groove uses that put the rest of the world in there.
