The results of the annual Packt Publishing CMS awards are out, and finally Drupal has got a winning place!
After three intense months of voting, Packt Publishing can today announce that Drupal has won the Overall 2007 Open Source CMS Award. With 18,000 votes on PacktÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s website, coupled with the expert opinions from a panel of judges, Drupal succeeds Joomla! as the overall winner and receives a cheque for $5,000.
This is truly good news for the Drupal community; it means lots of press coverage, interest in the project, and more new users and developers – all leading to improvements in the system as a whole. Good stuff!
Edit: I just remembered (rather late in the day; I was reminded by the first of many “predictions for 2008” threads) that earlier this year, I predicted this would happen, which means I get extra smug points!
