Hi all,

I’ve been hearing wonderful things about the Magento project. I’m a web developer who’s going to be building my most pertinent site in a few weeks that I’ve ever done, because it’s my own.

As such, I’m being very critical as to what product I deploy my store on. I have no doubt that when I come back one year from now to this website, this is going to be one of the prominent ecommerce players out there.  My question is, can I reliably launch my store using Magento now, in say, 2 weeks? Are most folks just beta running the software now or actually doing any sales with a magento back-end?

Thanks for any help you may offer me. grin

@Steve - We strongly recommend you hold off and not use Magento in a production envionrment at this time . We are planning signifcant enhacements and changes in the next few weeks.

As much as we’d love to see Magento in live websites, the current preview version still has some work smile

Hi Roy,

Thank you for your honesty. Fortunately I love tweaking and I love software, so even if I go with another solution for now (I’d like to have my marketing campaign and store launched at least a month before christmas for some sales.), I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this project and won’t hesitate to switch over when it’s ready.

Cheers!
