They mentioned Plone on Slashdot this morning.
Plone is based on Zope.
hmmm, plone looks really nice... but i think that the strength of CityDesk is that it's actually a nice alternative to something like plone or any of those other server-based cms.
Do you have an idea what trouble it is to set up Python, Zope and Plone on a $2/month hosting with a minimum-wage admin who has just started to deploy PHP, let alone mySQL?
Yeah, but Nasa uses plone!
CD and Plone aim at two different users: The former offers a WYSIWIG interface to generate static, self-contained files; The latter is a CMS, that generates on the fly pages.
Seems like Plone is more along the lines of Moveable Type than CityDesk...
It's nearly inconceivable that a usable site could be built using plone. It has so much extra crap that virtually every site you find that has been built on plone gets abandoned.
