Default Re: Xcart vs Magneto

OK, I read again this post:

What about installing an extension using a Marketplace? Especially when you don't touch the core? Magento allows this and I think is very powerful feature. You can uninstall immediately what you don't need with a click. There are modules for X-Cart which need tenth steps to achieve, and sometimes is not a guarantee you can really do it.

I am not complaining X-Cart. I would like to see some things improved around here. Unfortunately we won't see such of behavior like installing/uninstalling extension without worry something bad could happen. Again Attributes and CMS Page/Blocks are great to have in X-Cart (even in Next).
X-Cart Next: Business 5.2 (learning and testing)
X-Cart Classic: Gold and Gold Plus 4.7
Lots of Modules and Customizations
OS in use: Red Hat Enterprise, Fedora, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Kali Linux
Ideas for Server configuration (basicaly): Nginx/Pound (reverse proxy), Apache/Nginx (webserver), Squid/Varnish (cache server), HHVM or (PHP-FPM + PHP 5.6 + opcache), MariaDB/Percona MySQL Server, Redis (storing sessions)

You can catch my ideas here:

As for me both shopping carts have pros and cons. You just need to decide which features are more important for you.

● Customizable (PHP and WYSIWYG)
● Fits any type of business
● Security, shipment, payment
● CMS capabilities
● Almost no bugs, new editions are stable

● Flexible and customizable
● Fully loaded with features(product management, inventory, marketing, SEO, etc)
● Multiple storefronts, languages, currencies, taxes
● Numerous payment and shipment options
● Big community, huge number of extensions

I also found a good comparison of those shopping carts here

I think it can help to understand differences between X-Cart and Magento.
