Eight months ago, I was talking about open source eCommerce, and I asked Can open source eCommerce contend? At the time I was worried by the lack of quality and even more so the poor user interfaces offered in the open source eCommerce solutions. However, I talked briefly about a new solution that was soon-to-be-released, Magento. Well, it’s been released and in my opinion it is probably the best solution available.
Jeffery Scott posted a great article called Magento – The New Standard in Open Source eCommerce over at our recently launched Web Developer News site. Magento is making huge progress, and I hope that this new blood forces other eCommerce solutions to take action. A little competition could benefit us all.
