Zope and Enhydra Comparison by Paul Gresham, CEO/CTO, MediaVisual

This is now available via the on-line Lutris Enhydra Journal
(for access register via

Excerpt (which struck a particular chord with me):

"The learning curve of Enhydra is initially steeper but shallows out
quite quickly. The Zope learning curve is very shallow and then
increases exponentially to x to power infinity at which point your head
valorizes. Of course to give Zope its karma back, Zope is more easily
accessible to non-programmers whereas Enhydra is much less-so. The main
reason behind using Enhydra on our most critical product to date, was
that we knew we could do it with servlets, and that worst case, and
given the structure of enhydra, we knew we could code our way out of any
problems. Using Zope we knew that we would reach situations which may be
unresolvable in the short term, and could not make significant business
decisions with so many unknown factors and lack of any way to circumvent
problems. The upshot is that our Zope projects were rather painful and
Enhydra ones wore out our keyboards with so much code."

The second sentence is perhaps a candidate for
http://dna.yi.org/Zope/Quotes. Maybe a North American
reader could confirm that "valorizes" means what I
think it means ;-)
