Joomla! CMS

Joomla! CMS is currently being supported by a community of 140,000+ members and a team of Core Developers and Development Work Group Members ( I happen to be one too! )

Joomla! CMS version 1.5 has been written from ground up and it has a comprehensive API with a beautiful Model View Controller (MVC) architecture. Jooml! CMS also has a very intuitive and user friendly administration interface. Joomla! is not only a great CMS out of the box, but also it makes a great framework for developing all sorts of different web applications.

The judges indicated that Joomla! is ‘possibly one of the biggest success stories in open source of late’. “Its first release came in only September 2005 and since then has grown to be one of the most downloaded Content Management Systems on the web.
