Just remember, you did ask...
"#2 - What is Plone? - FINAL
Plone is a powerful and flexible, enterprise-level content management
solution that is easy to install, get started with, and use."
I take exception with this. It gives the impression that running a
complete Plone system is "easy to use and get started with" for
*everyone*. This is especially in light of the fact that #1 above it
says "without requiring a high level of technical skill or tools other
than a web browser".
#6 - geez, I'm not sure what to say about this.
Sure, it's easy to download and the installation goes fairly straight
In fact, this is my main complaint with Plone in general. It might very
well be easy to use for the end users - but to run the entire system
requires a person who is well versed in Zope/python. I'm a computer
administrator by profession - and *I* haven't been able to get a Plone
site up and running yet. What does that say for the "average user"?
Iow, the kb needed to run & maintain a Plone system is WAY under stated.
I have to be honest - I am close to giving up on Plone.
