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.
