Hi Folks,

Water and Stone published a report about the Open Source CMS market
that features Plone. In short Plone performs well, regarding some
criteria very well, beside others Downloads, Developers, running
installations, # of sites in the search engine top 5/10 for certain
common keywords and social networks activity.

But they also list Plone in the "Cause of Concern" section because of:

* Brand strength (search engine visibility, site popularity, mindshare,
  reputation).
* evaluation->usage conversion rate
* Abandonment rate - number of users that do not use Plone any
  longer

Mindshare (who knows Plone), conversion rate and abandonment numbers
where taken from their own users survey with 2500 participants. The
rest are various metrics from search engines and external sites.

But see yourself, the report is available here:

Cheers,

..Carsten
