Open Source ECommerce Options?

So there are a lot of options out there for developing an ecommerce solution.

I was initially just thinking of going with OScommerce - but don't want to discount the other options there without careful consideration.

Does anyone have any advice on this or possibly a comparison that someone else has done that they can link?

Depending on your skill sets, hosting capabilities and how much you want to offer your customer(s) .. Megento is emerging as the stand out package.

I have been using it for about a year. It is open source, like OSCommerce, and very well supported in the community.

I simply do not use anything else now. I highly recommend it.

My thinking is I need it to be CSS workable.

I also want to be able to do something like this with special items: chainlove.com.

I did a brief survey and I was really curious about Magento from the good stuff I encountered during my independent research.
I highly recommend dashCommerce integrated with Umbraco: http://www.codeplex.com/commerce4umbraco

It's .NET. Very scalable, both programmatically and layout-wize.
You have complete control with Magento at the DOM, HTML and css levels. Read through the following. It will help you understand the app layers of Magento from a design point of view.
