The admin interface is really directed at running a store, with a dashboard displaying information important to a store manager, a catalogue that is easy to use and populate, a report menu and many other features.
I still have not tried any performance tests or reviewed it for potential security issues, but given the feature set, useability and interface, I think it will replace future Joomla installations for storefronts.
I would really like to know what others think about it. Have you used it? What problems have you run into?
(BTW, you cannot login via an http://localhost/ url. Instead, use your ip address to access the site.)
