For some reason we can't grasp there's a sense that concrete5 was designed for small sites. Is this just because it's easy to use and our interface is sexy? So much enterprise software is horrible to use that it's easy to believe "no one would possibly want to use this, so enterprise ready = ugly."

Last year we were pleasantly surprised to be mentioned as one of two systems to watch and the fastest growing community in the 2010 open source market share report.

This year the data gathering notice email got buried, and we're way behind. This is bad news.
Only you can help.

I know surveys are a complete drag, but it would really mean a lot to me and the community if we continued to be accurately represented in this report for 2011.

If you feel like concrete5 has saved you any time at all, please help us by giving just a few minutes back and filling out this survey. Tell your friends, tweet your link, stick it on your G+facebook-umbler thingie. This has got to be one of the easiest things you could ever do to give back to the community, so please help us all continue to grow!

We're trying to get some local concrete5 user groups started in the UK, and we thought we'd ask you for your help. If you live in the UK and would like to get more involved with concrete5 professionals in your neck of the woods can you speak up in our new UK forums?

concrete5 is an emerging leader in next generation web content management. Written for the LAMP stack, Windows support has always been an afterthought for the core team. Now concrete5 works well with IIS and can be installed with one click from the Microsoft WebMatrix application.

"We've always picked Unix based plaftorms for our own web hosting" says Concrete CMS CTO Andrew Embler. "Now that concrete5 works well on IIS, we're ecstatic that a larger community of business customers will be able to take advantage of concrete5's easy approach to web content management, while staying on their Windows based server environment."

Database support for concrete5 is still limited to MySQL, although SQL Server support is currently being worked on.
