How Can I Try Out A Content Management System?
Here is the ultimate place where you can test and freely try out with many of the open-source CMS systems available out there, without having to bother to find them, download them and install them.
This site was created with one goal in mind. To give you the opportunity to "try out" some of the best php/mysql based free and open source software systems in the world.
You are welcome to be the administrator of any site created in this testing space, as you are placed in the driver seat to decide which system best suits your effective publishing needs.
The administrator username and password is given for every system and each system is refreshed on the hour, every hour. This allows you to to add and delete content, change the way things look, and do all kinds of experimentation without worrying about breaking anything.
If you're looking for hosting or installation support, OpenSourceHost supports every system here. OpenSourceHost will even install the system of your choice for free when you sign up for an account.

i went by the http://www.opensourcecms.com/ website some time ago ... it looked promising and i registered ... i even tried it a bit but couldn't make much of it ...
question: what's the point of trying out a (web based) CMS if one hasn't agreed on a content to share with a bunch of other people, FIRST ...?
BTW: i'll be on the road and using a dialup connection till 25 June ..
