Drupal's, our CMS of choice, founder interviewed by Computerworld Australia

An extract from the article:

...
How many users do you estimate Drupal has?

It's impossible to count, but I estimate that there are roughly 200,000 public facing Drupal sites.

There are also a fair number of intranet Drupal sites that are locked behind company firewalls. It is even harder to estimate those.

Last year, Drupal was downloaded more than 600,000 times. That's also a partial view as we can't track all downloads.

NATO is one of the high profile organisations using Drupal. Other well known companies include Mozilla's Firefox, Yahoo and Skype. How exactly does NATO use Drupal?

The NATO work is using Drupal as a platform to support peace and stabilisation efforts throughout the world. They deploy Drupal sites in unstable environments to provide the local community with communication and collaboration capacity. I believe this work is driven by the Space and Naval Warfare division of the US Department of Defence.

Drupal modules can "override" the core's built-in features, extending or even replacing Drupal's default behavior without directly manipulating the programmed code in Drupal's core files. This modularization policy increases flexibility and security, and allows users to cleanly upgrade to newer releases, as the core code remains untouched. <a rel="follow" href="http://www.exena.it/">scarpe da lavoro</a>
