I really hate to talk about Windows, but this is a different problem and there is a wealth of experience in this group.
I am under 2 kinds of NDA here.
Question 1: it appears that Joomla is not a real problem for Hype content based upon the posts here, but I would still appreciate opinions. Joomla has been used in this particular project before but I may not be able to get the original files to look at. If you have experience please tell me the strong points and weak points. I would like to convince them to not go that route. Do you know if there are any security weaknesses?
Question 2: Does anyone here have experience with Windows based web apps? The specification for the building workplace may not even allow a Mac in the building, I am not yet clear on that, it caused raised eyebrows. I know thats ignorant, but specs are specs and these people you do not argue with. Not that I won't try for say, 5 minutes but you have to know where to get off the topic.
Is there an app out there something like Freeway, etc. Freeway for Windows seems to be gone. I don't like the idea of Adobe or any cloud app, and it seems ludicrous that a cloud app would satisfy security concerns, but it may be the devil they know, so the devil may be transformed into a good guy in their minds.
I have to come up with an answer by 4/17.
