IBM focuses on Drupal

My colleague Ben Menoza, just passed on this article about IBM Developer Works analysis of open source and cheap software to build a community website. They looked at Drupal, Ruby on Rails, Mambo, Typo3, Movable Type, WordPress, and TextPattern. Based on their requirements, Drupal came out ahead. In particular, they recognized ease of installation, shallow user learning curve, user management, the community, and the flexible theme framework.
