National Public Radio (NPR) in the U.S. have announced their "Top Web Gadgets of 2007" … the winners are Joomla and Drupal!
Everywhere you go nowadays, these two projects seem to be paired together as the leading lights of Open Source website software.
NPR’s reasoning was:
"In 2007, many of the coolest new gizmos don’t cost a thing.
Joomla and Drupal are two free, open-source software platforms that let anybody create incredibly complex Internet sites on their own.
You can make your own powerful and sophisticated discussion group, auction site, wiki, online magazine — or whatever else you can dream up — using relatively simple tools. Both have been around a while but became far more mature and easy to use in 2007."
The choice was made by Adam Davidson, NPR’s International Business and Economics Correspondent.
