I just installed Web Matrix 1.0 (out of curiosity) and learnd about Orchard this morning. It looks great.
While I've been working with MS technologies for about 20 years and still have a lot going on with them, I think for the (MS/.NET) platform to really succeed these days, it needs to address to a larger group than traditional "developers".
I mean guys like us who will download and install the code and then learn how to build something with it. I know it get easier every day but I still think not enough people will do it.
I already have enough code around to keep me busy and I'm looking for a thinner tool/process stack when I can.
While options like Blogger or WordPress are still far from what I'm thinking about (they're getting better though), I was recently attracted to
www.drupalgardens.com and now think Orchard needs the same!
What do you think?
Does one exists for DotnetNuke?
I will definately look at Orchard, mostly though the Orchard web site for now.
A simple SAAS option would be fantastic!
