Over on the WordPress blog, Matt Mullenweg announced that WordPress won the 2009 Open Source CMS award. Congratulations to all the hard working folks who make WordPress happen.
Matt’s post about winning the award can be found here.
This is the first time that WordPress has won that award, and I think Matt explained the significance very well.
“Every day thousands of new people are embracing WordPress to power not just their blogs but entire sites and communities without compromising on usability or scalability (as would be the case with a legacy CMS). Every member of the WordPress community, from core developer to beginning user, should be proud to be part of this momentum: congratulations to us all!”
So, congrats to the WordPress team on a well deserved acknowledgment.
