Drupal Wins the Big Prize

Drupal Wins Overall 2007 Open Source CMS Award: Drupal wins it all.

After three intense months of voting, Packt Publishing can today announce that Drupal has won the Overall 2007 Open Source CMS Award. With 18,000 votes on Packt’s website, coupled with the expert opinions from a panel of judges, Drupal succeeds Joomla! as the overall winner and receives a cheque for $5,000.

What’s interesting and perhaps controversial here is that Joomla! won “Best Open Source PHP CMS.” This is a little weird because Drupal is also written in PHP. There’s a paradox there, if you think about it.

  1. This is a little weird because Drupal is also written in PHP. There’s a paradox there, if you think about it.

    nah, they’re basically, indirectly saying that Joombla is the 2nd best PHP CMS. It’s like if you go to a 5k Road Race. They have overall winners (a podium of 1st to 3rd place), and they have age-group winners. The overall winners are removed from the age-group results. So it’s understood that if a 26 year old wins the race, that the winner of the 25-29 year old division is actually the 2nd finisher in that age group, but he still gets the gold.

  2. OR maybe, this just shows that the people who know what php is .. they think Joomla is better , whereas the ones who just care about using it and not the tech that much (i.e even if they knew what is php, didn’t care to vote in that area), think Drupal is better.

    Just a thought! :)
