[TYPO3-english] Magento - Typo3

Exactly Dmitry.

Presta is still quite new but in a very active development. The
roadmap looks very promissing and they have already lots of ideas - i
guess from magento - also multishop/multisites is on their roadmap. It
is also a question on what is actually needed as a shop solution. To
have a running Magento is like having a running TYPO3 site - it is
brilliant even in the backend, but until you get it (magento) running
in a customized setting takes often very long time and especially
starters will move in lots of cul de sacs and get lost in a labyrinth
of folders with same and similar names.

This is much better in Presta. But as it is alpha we need to wait I
guess if it can get to be a REAL Community Shop Solution. They also
have a dedicated team and often Teams like this form a company when
things are running and the community is not more so needed for alpha
and beta testings. And often than it costs a lot to have specials
features in those solutions. Best example is Magento actually!

I hope the people from Presta keep it like TYPO3 a REAL Community
solution and I also hope TYPO3 in Version 5 stays like this as I just
read about the new license changes and why they have been made and am
no more sure about this too!
