Plenty of potential but the html styling option doesn't seem to work and the documentation is poor.

Thumbs down! Once on the project's homepage I clicked "try it" only to discover a redirect to "hotscript.com" displaying as follow:

"Thank You for Rating BolinOS!

You have rated "BolinOS" as Excellent! .

We will review your vote shortly and include it in our rating database if approved."

Great way of working and thinking!

By the way, the best CMS out now is e-xoopport (http://www.e-xoopport.it), an Italian project based on e-xoops no longer developed (still active under a new name "runcms")

Just out of curiosity, I tried going to the project page and clicking "try it". The link went to a legitimate page on the BolinOS site. I tried going to hotscript.com, but that site isn't responding. I don't see any foul play going on right now, but it's possible that whatever was going on earlier has stopped.

Wow, the pocket pc and palm publication from the web thing is just fantastic. Has anyone tried on smartphones? This is a killer.

Looks promising. It installed fine on localhost. The problem is, I can't get it to diplay html. It reverts to ftp when I click a link. And the documentation is very poor, so trying to figure out if it's file permissions, or what, is relatively useless.

splendid program, the versatility of the tool is just incredible, and the text edit interface is even easier than word (the cut and paste capability is the best thing I've ever seen!)

I love this wysiwyg edit mode! Cut and paste from Dreamweaver is a game now. I am even considering switching from typo3 to bolinos.

A pain in the ass to install (for me anyway). I just need to know what to put in my website now... I really dig the animated vortex-navigation!
