    "Ahh the college years. Though Wikipedia is believed to be the savior of students through the college, for me it was WordPress. As a computer science students, we were given assignments to constantly create websites with creative layouts and interactive user-interfaces. As an open source, me and my friends preferred WordPress to other available softwares due to its simplicity and easy to use features. Even in one major assignment, where we were supposed to create an Amazon like retail store, which we thought would take us forever to build due to its complexity, with the use of WordPress, we were able to manage and build it in timely and very efficient manner without any hassles or hardships. I think WordPress is the best option up there in the market available, due to its simplistic and easy to use and interactive tools and interface. "

    "I just started a small supplement business. I decided first things first lets build a webpage so i can find clients from all over rather then just locally by word of mouth. I was a bit anxious about doing this on my own but didnt want to dish out cash for a web designer so I picked Joomla!. Im glad I did. Very easy. Simple instructions and amazing customer support."

    "I build websites on the side and most of my software is older and I have put off buying new software because of their high cost which I can't afford right now. I was very happy to run across this software, it does a good job of building a website, I am used to these kinds of software, but I feel it would be fairly intuitive and easy for a newcomer to use as well. It may not have all of the bells and whistles that professional software has, but this software is free and will do a great job for a lot of people."

    "For what it is Wix is really a great way to build a website if you don't understand any html or coding. It gives you all the tools you need that will make a nice looking website in no time at all. Even if you do code Wix is a nice way to build a template as a starting point before adding some flair to it. If you are starting your own business page or whatever the need I highly recommend Wix's tools to get you started."
