Joomla one of many reaching critical mass

Bryan Ruby's picture

The folks at Joomla.org continue to point out the success they have had since leaving the confines of the Mambo Content Management System (CMS).  While we are glad to see their numbers are up, we believe that Joomla isn't alone in seeing those numbers climb.  Just yesterday the folks at Drupal.org was making the same claim during their release of Drupal 4.7.

CMS Report has observed that Web CMS in general are seeing an increase in widespread adoption by the masses. Our theory as to why this is happening? We believe that while CMS has reached critical mass in Canada, Europe, and Asia...it has only been in recent years that CMS are being understood and adopted by those in the United States.  Perhaps early adopter of the Web, the United States is only now ready for the paradigm shift currently taking place on the Internet with static HTML pages being fully replaced by CMS applications.  These are just some early observations for future discussion here at CMS Report.  Stay tuned!

Joomla! — Goes Nuclear! -  The world's most-popular, award-winning, Open Source CMS (Content Management System) has topped One Terabyte (1024 Gigabytes) of data transfer for the month of April (excluding the Forge). This is enormous, and it reflects the exponential growth the project has been enjoying in recent times.  [Joomla.org]
