Whitehouse.gov switches to Drupal

Personal Democracy Forum has a case study on the White House’s switch to Drupal from a proprietary content management system.

Update: Via Tim O’Reilly we learn that the full stack is Drupal, Apache, MySQL, and Red Hat Linux. They’re using Apache Solr for search.

One thought on “Whitehouse.gov switches to Drupal

  1. …which is great from a user standpoint: it is easy to use.

    From a developer’s standpoint, however, Drupal must’ve originated from the 7th ring of hell. If the choice was either making customizations to Drupal or eating dirt, I’d pick up a spoon every time.
