MailChimp2
This plugin should be rated excellent, but due to a change to MailChimp API calls, it won't function after January 16th 2012.

The warning from mailchimp is as follows:
Your MailChimp account is using the login() API method which will be disabled in the near future.

I hope the developers can patch this module to work with the new API calls, as it is by far the best mailing list module!
Owner's reply

Please make sure you're running the latest version of the module. It uses the current MailChimp API (version 1.3) and also supports both Joomla 1.5 and 1.7, so it should be nowhere near end-of-life.

VirtueMart
Virtuemart is a dinosaur that somehow still is rated as the top eCommerce solution for Joomla. If you value your time you will not implement this on your site or any of your clients.

I have been using joomla for five years and have never had so many problems with one extension. The thing isn't even coded in MVC which turns quick design fixes into painful hours of searching through hundreds of PHP files in order to add an HR or change a font.

Support seems limited on their forums to other users, most of which are so tied up bending over backwards to get their installation working properly they aren't able to help you.

If you're used to how Joomla since 1.5 is SUPPOSED to work, this template will only infuriate you and cost you lots of extra hours while you fix the (sometimes well known) bugs.
