We are pleased to announce that WordPress has won the Overall Best Open Source CMS Award in the 2009 Open Source CMS Awards. WordPress has won this Award for the first time in the past four years, earning itself a place in the Hall of Fame category for the Award next year.

Packt Publishing has released it’s results for the 2009 Open Source CMS Award’s and has found that WordPress is the best content management system/platform of 2009. This is great news — now I can point the non-believers out there to something when they scoff at my praises for the platform. Oh it’s also great for other reasons as well, of course.
