My experience with Typo3 would suggest it is not a good alternative for 
Linux Australia. If there is a guru out there who wants to set it all up 
then maybe it would work. No doubting it is a great piece of work but it 
is very complex and a complete pain to set up and and develop within. 
It's great strength seems to be it's permission systems - which for 
Linux Australia are probably not worth much. It does have a WYSIWYG 
content editor and provides impressive client-side functionality that 
seems to work well in all browsers,..... but, it is still a beast :-)
