| Drupal is a healthy and growing open source project. So I wish for more of
| the same! That is, more people coming together to tackle difficult issues
| like improving the user interface, performance, documentation and integration
| with other systems. Some specific things I'd like to see are memcache
| support, an expanded workflow engine, better image handling, and more Drupal
| distributions (using installation profiles) for vertical markets. These
| features are available now via third-party modules, but having them as part
| of core adds polish and makes Drupal even more attractive.

| Created as an open-source project by Dries Buytaert, Drupal is a free content
| management framework--a tool for building customized websites quickly and
| easily, without sacrificing features or stability. Site owners can choose
| from a list of possible features: they might, say, want to publish Â*articles,
| offer each user a profile and a blog, or allow users to vote or comment on
| content. All these features are optional, and most are independent of the
| others.

Acquia to Ship Commercially Supported Drupal Build

,----[ Quote ]
| Acquia, Drupal founder Dries Buytaert’s new company, took to the stage last
| Thursday at the Launch Pad session at the web 2.0 Expo in SF. Although they
| didn’t win the people’s choice for best startup (this honor went to Triggit),
| their soon to be released Carbon and Spokes programs are still plenty
| enticing.

| It can be thought of as the equivalent of Red Hat distributions of Open
| Source Linux in that it’s essentially a commercial supported distribution of
| Open Source software. The benefit of such a system is that it offers users
| all the glories of open source software and community support along with
| business-quality support and response time guarantees.
