While there are a lot of content management systems out there, few can boast as many downloads as Joomla! Originally released in 2005, Joomla! has some very powerful features such as an intuitive WYSIWYG editor, content scheduling, SEO-friendly URLs, and more. You won’t feel alone or stranded if you use Joomla! because the very active and vibrant community behind the CMS has contributed thousands of free and commercial plugins, offers global and local meetups (and even a Joomla! community magazine), and commits frequently to the code base.

I'm a Joomla user since a lot of years ago and I've tested this solution from Bitnami to install Joomla!. It's an easy and quick way to deploy Joomla in your computer, a virtual machine or in the cloud. It comes totally updated and with some initial languages installed (English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Chinese, Russian...).
This makes installing Joomla so easy, I use it to help kids at the local YMCA install Joomla and show them how to create basic web sites. It's so easy to use for students from as little as 6 years old. Highly recommended for new users, and experienced used who just want to make an install easier.
Joomla itself is a complete and powerful solution, but if we add speed, it becomes a unique software. Bitnami + Joomla = Unique Mix
I installed the platform with a few simple steps. It 's all pretty simple, I had a few minutes the platform available to work.
I'm migrating to to a new CMS system that must support HTML5/CSS3 and joomla was the clear leader with all the extensions!
Problem was that there are SO many show stoppers, blank screens, file upload failures! that it took my CS buddy to get it (partially) working.
Overall hopeful but it's been tough out of the gate.
