Drupal 7, Are You Ready?

Drupal 7 is ready! But are you ready for Drupal 7? Should you start using it to build new sites? Should you upgrade all of your current sites? Angie Byron, Kent Bye, Jeff Eaton, Nate Haug, Joe Shindelar, and Jeff Robbins discuss the ins and outs and try to help listeners to decide whether they should start using Drupal 7.

This chart, created for the Webchick Drupal 7 Tour was the impetus for the discussion (click for PDF version):
