Looking for a good open-source application or starter kit.

P: n/a
My needs are relatively simple. I'm putting together a web site
prototype that has some very minimal e-commerce type stuff. I've been
away from asp.net for a little while.

It's not a store, so I'm not looking for that specific functionality.
It will include to facility to maintain a product list.

I'm looking for a starter kit that will hande users in different
roles, and allow them self-service to maintain their contact
information and passwords.

I'm looking at dashCommerce right now, but I'm having some issues and
it hasn't won me over yet. I've previously used the CSK, which was ok
for a while, but too complicated.

I'm not looking for a lot of features or a long learning curve, just
something solid that can look decent without a lot of work.

Check out www.dotshoppingcart.com. I like it better than dashCommerce
because it doesn't use SubSonic. I prefer the old stored procedure approach
myself, which makes dotshoppingcart more attractive for my tastes. The open
source version is on a link in the right-hand column of their home page.
Really nice stuff!

Hope this helps,
Mark Fitzpatrick
