A Good Comparison of Open Source CMSes for Non-Profits

IdealwareWhen Laura Quinn from Idealware approached me a while ago about an idea for a review of the top open source CMSes for non-profits, I thought to myself, “she’s really going to get herself into a mess.” Instead, Laura’s done a very admiral job of keeping Joomla, Drupal, and Plone in their corners, without too much blood on the mat.

Laura collaborated with Brett Bonfield to create Comparing Open Source CMSes: Joomla, Drupal, and Plone which was released this morning. This is a great read, an even keel and unbiased reporting of their views on the big three. I think we in Joomla can learn a lot from this report, and look forward to your comments and further review.

I think they hit the Joomla difference on the head when they wrote:

Joomla strives for power in simplicity. Its programmers believe that anyone with a bit of technical know-how should have no problem setting up and maintaining a website. They have created a tool that is friendly, comparatively easy to get started with, and prioritizes ease of use.
