Open source platforms (including WordPress!) on the decline?

I dunno about you, but it seems a week doesn’t go past where I don’t hear someone spruking the growth and importance of open source in the enterprise – or how OS principles are going to revolutionize how we work etc. etc.

And yet, check out this latest data from compete – comparing the homepages of WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Concrete5 and TextPattern

Are open source platforms declining in popularity?

And then take a look at the yearly changes:

Annual data doesnt look to great either


So sure, Compete isn’t that accurate, but it’s also generally not that wrong – are we seeing a significant shift in the use of OS software… the wrong way?
