Umbraco - Free CMS

I just found on the internet Umbraco. This is a free CMS system and it looks great. The current release is version 3.0.6. I saw a screenshot of it, and that looks really great!
Check it out at: http://www.codeplex.com/umbraco

Unfortunately, the back-end database is a SQL Server variant. To use it with MySQL or a database you like, you should wait untill release 4, which will be the next release. They expect a final release of version 4 at the end of this year. That's why I have to wait until then.
For the time being, I just play around with version 3.0.6 on a virtual pc (currently trying to install the whole stuff).

I am really looking forward to use this product. To get an indication of the quality, peugeot company, Heinz and even Microsoft (MS Developer Network in Denmark) are using this platform.

Hi, sorry, I am not familiar with it. Did you try to post your question on the umbraco forum (http://our.umbraco.org/)?

@Hemant: Indeed, it's a really nice CMS, specially the latest version(s) where you can use the razor syntax.
