Completely new to SS. We are about to engage web design company who have recommended SS in preference to Joomla. I'm happy to go with SS if we get the look and functionality we need. It's open source and that's a must have.
However, I did some Googling earlier and encountered posts where users were complaining about SS site performance, core devs. acknowledged the issues too.
The posts were from c.2009. Before we take the SS plunge I'd welcome any feedback on any perfomance issues in the current stable release.
