Orchard and Umbraco: Module vs. Package

Nov 22, 2010 at 11:04 AM

I have been using Umbraco CMS for a few months.

I was asked to give a short presentation on Umbraco CMS at a Microsoft Innovation Center (MIC) in Belgium. I am putting some though on this and I think Orchard is an alternative that worths being mentioned during the event.

Orchard is MVC-based while the current version of Umbraco is Web Forms-based. Though important that consideration is (Umbraco 5 is being refactored in MVC), I think that the key point is the focus on Module for Orchard while Umbraco uses packages.

You are Orchard developers and/or Orchard aholic. I'd like to ask you what are the pros and cons of the 2 approaches. Your answer will be debated during my presentation at MIC.
