Three Top Open Source Content Management Systems

Packt Publishing today announced the winner of the 2006 Open Source Content Management System Award as Joomla!, with Drupal and Plone coming second and third respectively. 70 different Open Source Content Management Systems were nominated for the award with the top five being selected for the final by visitors to and judges from The Open Source Collective, MySQL, the Eclipse Foundation.

Joomla! is the youngest CMS of the five finalists having been forked by the then Mambo development team in August 2005. Joomla! was chosen due its ease of installation and use along with the active development and community that supports the project. Coming in a very close second place was Drupal which was commended for its ease of use and exceptional documentation. In third place came Plone. Built on the Zope platform, Plone is very different to the other CMS's in the top five and was noted for its steep learning curve. However it was praised by the judges for its power, flexibility, the customization it offered and its integration with LDAP.
