In general I agree widely with Dmitry Dulepovs view. Thanks Dmitry for
clearing things up.
Next issue in this thread is in my opinion: Janus Boye might be right in
some fact and he might be wrong in other. He might be wrong in most things.
_But_ TYPO3 has a image problem if people watching CMS-es get the same
impression that Janus argues for.
I real world when companies and organisations face the choice of CMS they
have same og less deep knowledge of TYPO3 as Janus have. And then TYPO3 will
not be the choice. So anyway - the problem falls back to the TYPO3
