Choosing an open source CMS

Personally, I'd recommend Plone to anybody looking for an open source content management system (CMS). But perhaps I'm a little biased towards it because I've done a lot of work with Plone and I know how good it is. So here's an unbiased article about how to choose an open source CMS.

Some argue that Plone is less suitable for small businesses and organisations but I disagree. Out of the box, Plone may be a little overblown for those who just need to get a small site up and running and want to be able to edit their own content.

But Plone's flexibility means that it can be customized to remove or hide a lot of it's features until they become necessary, making it very easy to use.

And, when the time comes to expand the site and add features and functionality (which it will), Plone can handle it.
