Post 2006 Open Source Content Management System Award Winner Announced!
Packt Publishing today (14 November) announced the winner of the 2006 Open Source Content Management System Award as Joomla!, with Drupal and Plone coming second and third respectively. The winning CMS was selected by a panel of judges, and 16,000 votes from users on Packt Publishing.

More than 70 different Open Source Content Management Systems were nominated for the award with the top five being selected for the final. After eight weeks of voting from visitors to Packt Publishing and judges from The Open Source Collective, MySQL, the Eclipse Foundation, and CMSPros, Joomla! triumphed with the most votes, winning $5,000.

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 and collecting $3,000 is Drupal which was commended for its ease of use and exceptional documentation. In third place came Plone, who receive $2,000. 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.

[font=Arial]Choosing the top three proved to be a difficult experience for the judges, due to the quality of the finalists and their ability to suit different tasks depending on the objective of the user. “All the CMS’s that made the top 5 are very goodâ€
