Monday, July 23 (Try before you...Install)

Link to site
" site was created with one goal in mind. To give you the opportunity to "try out" some of the best php/mysql based free and open source software systems in the world (Portals, Blogs, E-commerce, Groupware, Forums, e-learning, Wiki, etc) . You are welcome to be the administrator of any site on this site, allowing you to decide which system best suits your needs. The administrator username and password is given for every system and each system is deleted and re-installed every two hours. This allows you to to add and delete content, change the way things look, basically be the admin of any system here without fear of breaking anything.
The idea behind creating opensourceCMS revolved around the need to have a place where one could completely test content management systems in one place, before taking the time to install one. No one wants to install a CMS (Content Management System) only to find it lacked key features or functions you need. Also, you may find a CMS you didn't know about and realize it was exactly what you needed.

The systems on opensourceCMS are not an exhaustive list of content management systems and they are adding more systems all the time. They are constantly adding systems, but they don't know everything that is out there. Also, keep in mind that they only provide demo's of php/mysql based systems."

What a great idea, Scott Goodwin (the mastermind behind this site) ! This will certainly save time in finding relevant open source solutions and enable us to test them before having to go through the often tedious work of installing, and configuring them. All open source PHP fans out there will surely appreciate this site (hopefully more sites like this will pop-up).

Finally, we have to appreciate and thank Matnor (Head of Netsys) for discovering this site for us .

It's a decent site with a good number of reviews. I've used it in the past for testing things out.
