Default A better CMS (article)

Making A Better CMS,” an article by Jeffrey Veen, has some good insights into a bunch of existing content management systems.

Default Jeffrey is right on!

Excellent insights, and they say just why I quit working on Mambo and haven't tried a different CMS. Too difficult to install, to difficult to use, poor documentation, he is right on.

My impression of most of them also.

Although you are not a Mac user (in this case it makes no difference as most CMS programs can be managed from any platform), there is also a long discussion of CMS systems on Macintouch. Not just rants or raves from partisans of one or another CMS (though there is some of that), but a few of the participants provided focused comments about usability.
