What is the good and bad parts of Plone?

Good Parts:

  • ZODB - Object Oriented Database
  • Python - Can't be easier to program
  • TAL/TALES - Excellent Templating
  • CSS - Done right
  • Flexibility - Unsurpassed
  • Archetypes - Easy to make new objects

Bad Parts: 

  • ZODB - Waking up objects
  • Debugging - Painful memory and performance hide-and-seek
  • Vocabulary - Everything has a bloody new name!
  • Monkey Patching that can't be fully uninstalled breaks the database or random parts
    • LinguaFace is a case in point
  • Learning Curve - The bad status of the documentation doesn't help
  • Importing data is a bigger pain than defining data
