SilverStripe is hiring
their CMS is a dog.
In this forum, Byran, were I to say “their CMS is awesome” (and I believe it is), I don’t think I would need to explain myself.
The contrary position, however, requires some backup.
really? oh well. we got asked to host one of their older versions, and on a server normally used to handling 40 or so websites, including our own php based cms, it took most of the server resources and ran really slow, crippling any other site on the box. Maybe they’ve fixed it or optimised their php code now, I don’t know. Just an observation.
I take it there is some vested interest here for a comment like that to be made.
No vested interest as such: I used it and liked it a great deal. I haven’t seen any other open source CMS come anywhere close to its awesomeness.
I know “everyone” calls them CMSs, but I must say I agree with Prophet Stallman about the term:
The term “content management” takes the prize for vacuity. Neither word has any specific meaning; “content” means “some sort of information”, and “management” in this context means “doing something with it”. So a “content management system” is a system for doing something to some sort of information. In most cases, that term really refers to a system for updating a website. For that, we recommend the term “website revision system” (WRS).

BTW, my comment above was just a darken-the-mood tangent. :-) No particular relevance to the discussion above, except the term CMS.
