My browser crashed just now, and in so doing wiped a particularly vitriolic post about the missed opportunity that is Magento’s position in the market. For all the talk of “Community”, Varien is not interested in small businesses with limited budgets, and has basically hung out to dry the long tail of budding entrepreneurs with limited financial as well as technical resources.

If you do not know how to code and do not have the budget to hire a pro, STAY AWAY FROM MAGENTO. I will continue for a few days more to see if any breakthrough changes my opinion, but thus far, I abhor the hoops required to do simple tasks. This makes me think of early versions of Drupal. A perfect storm of dozens of idiosyncratic little steps that leaves the user to wonder what sadist designed this software.
