This is not a troll.
I have been wondering why.
The were the only out of the box CMS at those LinuxWorlds.

I have tried a few cms projects, and prefer Drupal and Geeklaw.  
The biggest things that bothers me about Mambo are the browser
compatibility issues.

These issues include lockup of the admin pages when using Mozilla or
Firefox, and compatibility of their editor with Opera and the Mac
browsers.

Since I am in Linux most of the time, I need a CMS that works with
Mozilla.
