Drupal, KDE, and You

Work continues on the Dot update. We're in the middle boring stages now, plenty going on, but there isn't really anything interesting to talk about on that front. There will be soon, and I appreciate everyone's patience. But I wanted to take some time to talk about something relatively important. Why did I choose Drupal for the Dot?

There are a lot of other choices, and other platforms would have been easier to set up. For instance, WordPress has an excellent import feature, and at this point it's clear that it would have been easier to use WordPress for importing stories than Drupal. Also, WordPress is really all that the Dot would need right now. Multiple authors can make posts, they can be categorized, it has a nice WYSIWYG editor, etc.

But yet, I chose Drupal. I am experienced with Drupal, but even that wasn't the real reason that I chose it.
