Full ack. There's nothing like a manual review on both systems, the 
cmsmatrix stuff seems to be taken from the feature lists only. I plan to 
write a comparison of Plone/Typo3 once I have a litte more time. It will 
be, of course, about getting into Plone from a Typo3 user's perspective.

I did a bit of toying around with Plone this weekend, and it looks a lot 
more like one of the *Nukes or Slashdot than TYPO3. The basic portal 
features and workflow are there out of the box, but customizing the look 
and feel seems a lot more troublesome than with TYPO3.
