With 18,000 votes on Packt’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.
Joomla! and Drupal occupied first and second places in 2006, with their quality proving to be popular with the judges again this year. Joomla! retains its position in the top three, coming second and winning $3,000, with CMS Made Simple in third collecting $2,000.
