With potentially more of a crowd draw than Cassius Clay versus Sonny Liston, the battle between Joomla and Drupal is sure to get some emotions running high. I, however, am mostly oblivious to the battle lines as I’m just a hapless infrastructure SysAdmin who has stumbled into web administration and is just trying to make sense of articles, sections and categories *casts contemptuous glance at Joomla*. Honestly, I don’t want to stir up strife. I just want to find the product that works best for my uses. Plus, I love open and honest debate.
In a recent post of mine called “Tell Me About Yourself or DIAF“, a commenter named John Locke mentioned his own struggles with Joomla. The comment conversation that ensued ended up with John answering my specific questions about Joomla / VirtueMart versus Drupal / Ubercart on his own company blog. I encourage you to read his post “Ask Freelock: Why pick Drupal/Ubercart over Joomla/Virtuemart?”
I’d like to keep this conversation about CMSs and their more prominent eCommerce plugins going, so if you have thoughts, opinions or flames you have a few options. First, you can comment on John’s blog or mine. Second, you can post a reply / rebuttal on your own blog and ping John and me separately. Third, you could guest post on my blog with your own perspective. The choice is yours!
