I have deployed osCommerce storefronts three times in the past few years. Now, I have created a ZenCart site for our school auction, because ZenCart has an auction product type, whereas osCommerce does not. In my first experience with ZenCart, I was suprised to find that many parts look exactly like osCommerce. On the whole, ZenCart appears more fully developed: more modules, proper admin authentication, more product types, and so on. Some of the code also appears to use the same conventions. It appears to me that either the code split into two projects at some point, or else someone copied many of the features of one to create the other. Do you know the history of these two projects?
How Are osCommerce and ZenCart Related?
