Alfresco test drive

I was able to configure a Windows 2000 Server version of Alfresco. By default, it uses HSQL, and I'd prefer postgresql. There's an FAQ for the latter, so that will be the next task at hand if I pursue this. On my 2GB machine, it did labor a bit launching the application with Tomcat -- possibly too much heavy lifting for a virtual shared hosting scenario.

Next day: I read the FAQ over at Textdrive, and this clinched what is, for now, my decision to forego Java as an open source CMS platform.

The Alfresco documentation reflects VC investmment. Plone.org is almost up to this standard, but not quite.
