The Sad Story of XOOPS: Governance Fail

XOOPS LogoThe XOOPS community was dealt a bad hand last week. The Dutch Court has rejected its suit against former project manager Herko Coomans and allowed Coomans to keep funds totally more than €15,000 held in a fund earmarked for the project.

This is hardly the first open source project to come into a bad way when early or original founders split due to disagreements. Gentoo had all manner of drama surrounding founder Daniel Robbins departure and attempted return. There's the split from Mambo to Joomla, X.org from XFree86... most of which have their roots in poor governance issues.

Which one should I pick, Joomla, Mambo, Postnuke, Xoops?

I dont want to spend all day on each one to find out with one is the best. Which one is the most user friendly and has skins so I can match it up with my other sites?
