    Folks,

    Fantastico contains four CM tools:
    - PHP-Nuke
    - phpWebSite
    - Post-Nuke
    - Xoops

    I am not familiar with any of them, but I'm fairly technically inclined and very comfortable with PHP. I was wondering if anyone else has done an analysis of the four in terms of ease-of-use and feature sets? Is there a post or thread about this somewhere?

    I figured it's worth asking so that I may "stand on the shoulders of giants" :D

    Thanks all!

    PHP-Nuke
    - Good simple lots of plugins and skins, most users find it simple to learn.
    - Very popular and because it is it is also the most HACKED cms, you can secure it but you need to turn off everything you don't use. Make sure you keep it up to date and watch the development site for updates.

    phpWebSite
    - Simple, not as many features

    Post-Nuke
    - a Fork from PHP-NUKE more secure but still has security flaws almost as popular as PHP-NUKE plenty of plugins and skins

    Xoops
    -harder to learn but very secure.

    If you need to have a play with the various types then http://www.opensourcecms.com/ allows you to try them all out.
