23 "I\'m enamored with Cheetah" - Sam Ruby, senior member of IBM Emerging
24 Technologies Group & director of Apache Software Foundation
26 "Give Cheetah a try. You won\'t regret it. ... Cheetah is a truly powerful
27 system. ... Cheetah is a serious contender for the 'best of breed' Python
28 templating." - Alex Martelli
30 "People with a strong PHP background absolutely love Cheetah for being Smarty,
31 but much, much better." - Marek Baczynski
33 "I am using Smarty and I know it very well, but compiled Cheetah Templates with
34 its inheritance approach is much powerful and easier to use than Smarty." -
35 Jaroslaw Zabiello
37 "There is no better solution than Cheetah" - Wilk
39 "A cheetah template can inherit from a python class, or a cheetah template, and
40 a Python class can inherit from a cheetah template. This brings the full power
41 of OO programming facilities to the templating system, and simply blows away
42 other templating systems" - Mike Meyer
44 "Cheetah has successfully been introduced as a replacement for the overweight
45 XSL Templates for code generation. Despite the power of XSL (and notably XPath
46 expressions), code generation is better suited to Cheetah as templates are much
47 easier to implement and manage." - The FEAR development team

50 "I\'ve used Cheetah quite a bit and it\'s a very good package" - Kevin Dangoor,
