i have toyed with Zope for a couple of days, and i loved it
immediately, i can see the usefulness and ease of use of of zope for
publishing, i suppose it can be used to build a business app. others
have mentioned the advantages and disadvantages of zope for using
zope for gnue. technicalities aside, i think the biggest problem of
zope is the licence.

sure its GPL compatible but its too generous ala BSD, X11. though i
would love to use it (incidentally, i'm not using it) and would
encourage others too. i am glad that the creators of GNUE had the
foresight to use the GPL licence that will protect our freedom.
