A comment about Magento:

Magento is going to win the eCommerce software war, hands down. I’ve never seen another ecommerce platform so well architected and well designed as Magento.
– Jack Aboutboul, Red Hat

I attracted on the core architecture of Magento. Many open source web application doesn’t start from a good architecture so when that becomes popular, people need to adjust to use that. Magento is different because it’s based on Zend Framework. So, this application is built upon a good structure. I hope to write more in future about this application.
