Now THAT is interesting. Thank you, Xsecrets! ...I had considered Magento, but definitely won't now! ...Looking at the features, it seems that I would NEED their enterprise version anyway and it is WAY too expensive for my customers. They would need to pay that price for it and then they would have to pay me on top of it. Not affordable at all.Xsecrets wrote:I was excited when magento was announced. All the features they had sounded great. When the first release came out I put it on my local dev server and it was taking like 15+ sec to render a page over the lan. So I waited. They finally fixed the speed somewhat so I did one customer site on it and I won't do another one unless they pay me a truckload of money. It's the biggest steaming pile of crap I've ever seen. Oh I want to change the links in the footer. oh well break out grep cause they are spread all throughout the core files all 200 directories or whatever it is. It's crazy simple links could be in literally any file in the entire cart.
Has anyone checked out IBM's product? Now THAT has a REAL price tag. No one talks about that software. It's not even in this league, of Magento, PrestaShop, osCommerce and Open Cart. It's called WebSphere and all of the REALLY big boys are using THAT. Check it out:

$29,900 for the "Express" version. $182,000 for the Enterprise version:

Do a Google search on "wcsstore" and you'll see all of the stores that are using it, because it's in the path of the files for the store installation.
If you want to check out an awesome store, built on this, see this one: http://www.samash.com/
It's a real model for how I would love to see Open Cart's functionality increase. Let's all drool now.
...tomatocart is a remake of osCommerce and it looks HEAVY, but impressive.
