Joomla! - We Keep It Movin' by Cristina Solana
As the year 2010 draws to a close, we are pleased to share two recent reports comparing numerous CMS solutions where Joomla! proves to be a top contender:
Idealware (www.idealware.org) is a non-profit organization in the US that provides software research for the non-profit community. This report, titled “2010 Comparing Open Source Content Management Systems: WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal and Plone” not only gives high rankings to the Joomla project, but also reports, “The final tally showed Joomla as the market leader, followed by WordPress, then Drupal, then Plone.”

Additionally, Joomla! does very well as a community-driven project alongside corporate-supported Wordpress and Drupal in the "2010 Open Source CMS Market Share Report" published by Water & Stone (www.waterandstone.com). Referred to as "The Big Three", the report concludes that Wordpress, Joomla! and Drupal remain firmly in command of the market. The report assesses 20 Open Source Content Management Systems on a variety of metrics related to Rate of Adoption and Brand Strength.
Together may all who contribute to Joomla! celebrate and take pride in these findings!
