Clicking Through Drupal 7's Features
When looking for examples of enterprise applications where open source products have competed effectively against expensive and complex commercial products, a good place to start is content management. Open source content management systems (CMS) have become extremely popular choices for running very large, complex, and busy Web sites. Open source CMS Drupal has made its name on that basis, by managing some very popular Web sites, including many news sites and WhiteHouse.gov. However, in areas such as usability, Drupal has come up a little short when compared against competing open source CMS offerings such as Joomla and Wordpress. With its recent release, Drupal 7 now features a fully revamped administration interface that makes it easier to view and manage content, change the look and feel of sites, and extend the CMS through add-on modules.
