Parent article: Welcome to the new LWN.net!
I don't know a lot about phpnuke and slash but it looks like they are
both meant for building portal sites. Quixote is a general tool for
building dynamic web sites (e.g. more similar to PHP than to phpnuke).
I suspect Quixote was chosen because Python was prefered over Perl and
PHP. However, in the Python world there are lots of web frameworks
available (e.g. Zope, WebWare, Twisted, SkunkWeb). I can't say why
Quixote was chosen over them. I'm biased anyhow. :-)
