What is Mambo?

Mambo is a full-featured, award-winning content management system that can be used for everything from simple websites to complex corporate applications. It is used all over the world to power government portals, corporate intranets and extranets, ecommerce sites, nonprofit outreach, schools, church, and community sites.

Mambo is one of the most powerful Open Source Content Management Systems on the planet and with almost 8 million downloads, Mambo is arguably one of the most popular CMS's in the world. Mambo is easy to install, simple to manage, and reliable.

If you've read anything at all about content management systems (CMS), you'll probably know at least three things: Content Management Systems are the most exciting way to do business, Content Management Systems can be really, I mean really, complicated and lastly Content Management Systems are absolutely, outrageously, often unaffordably expensive.

Over the past eight years Mambo has changed all that ... Mambo is different from the normal models for CMS software. For a start, it's not complicated. Mambo has been developed for the masses. It's licensed under the GNU/GPL license, is free, easy to install and administer, and reliable.
