微軟與一家開源碼商業應用公司合作，即將推出經過微軟認證的 Drupal 分支版本！
Drupal SpikeIgnited from SpikeSource is an easy-to-understand out-of-the box web content management system. Based on one of the most popular and active open source projects from Drupal.org. SpikeSource adds unique capabilities including:
* Windows Compatible - Drupal SpikeIgnited is now available for Microsoft Windows XP and 2003 Server in addition to Linux (RHEL 4 or SLES 9).
* GUI installer - makes installing a snap
* Infrastructure Included - Includes exactly the infrastructure components you need, none of the extra stuff that you don’t: Apache 2, PostgreSQL 8.1, PHP 5, phpPGAdmin, etc.
* Completely Integrated – All components are integrated and configured to run out of the box
* Sandboxed – All components have been refactored with one install location that won’t interfere with other apps
* Multi Machine – Our installer lets you install the database on a different box than the web server and Drupal. This helps improve performance on heavily trafficked sites.
* Fully Tested – Not only has Spike run hundreds of thousands of tests on the individual components to ensure stability, security and interoperability – we also wrote more than 4000 tests to specifically exercise drupal itself. This is the best tested release of Drupal available today.
