Drupal’s Founder Sees Big Things Ahead for Version 8 of the CMS

Dries Buytaert is the founder and lead of the open source Drupal content management system, which OStatic and many other web sites are based on. He’s also the co-founder of Acquia, which offers a commercially supported version of Drupal. Dries is one of the more respected pundits in open source, and has submitted guest posts here on OStatic.

In a recent talk with Computerworld, Dries discusses version 8 of the Drupal CMS, and notes that while Drupal runs two percent of the world’s websites–nothing to shake a stick at–that number could grow to 10 percent. One of the big drivers for Drupal’s success remains its accessibility.
