Sure, only developers of Magento know all issues of this questions.
But very distantly Magento remind Elastic Path Commerce.

Magento is based on the Zend framework, which one can deduce to mean that it was written from scratch from the ground up. Magento has many inspirations, some good, most bad unfortunately, which is why M is meant to fill the gap where ecommerce engines fail. Whether Elastic Path was a direct or indirect inspiration is probably a long shot, but not impossible. I’m sure there are a number of ways M can be considered similar to other apps, but overall the team is developing this from the ground up, so it is not based on anything but the ideas the team and community have conceived and proposed.

Magento is based on over 5 years of serving hundreds of clients in the online commerce space smile We’ve gained tremendous experience and Magento is the product of this.
